California DUI attorney, California defense lawyerIt is no secret what teens do when they go off to college: they study and socialize. Socialization frequently leads to alcohol consumption, often perceived as a necessary part of the integration period. Many college students are over the age of 21, which is the legal drinking age. However, there are many more within the 17 to 21-year-old age bracket, and if these students are consuming alcohol on a regular basis, trouble may be imminent. However, regardless of age, a DUI conviction has the potential to wreak havoc on educational opportunities.

San Jose Colleges and Universities

Were you aware that San Jose is home to 63 colleges and universities? Of course, you have heard of the larger options, but there are a significant amount of smaller establishments geared toward higher learning. Students go to learn and socialize - sometimes too much socializing. In one study, approximately 56 percent of students admitted to drinking within the last month. Researchers believe that alcohol is to blame for some of the trouble within the college-aged community, which is why many of these educational facilities have policies in place to reduce inebriation.

Statistically, the need for increasing the awareness of this epidemic is strengthened as every day 28 people in the United States die due to an alcohol-related vehicle crash. Driving while under the influence (DUI) not only takes away a life too soon but the related damages contribute to a cost of $52 billion per year.

The series of hard-hitting PSA’s ran in conjunction with the holiday season beginning on December 26 through December 31. It was a timely effort since social drinking is heightened throughout the holiday season. The markets the PSA’s were distributed heavily was strategic by focusing on the ten states that could benefit most from the message due to the high rate of alcohol-impaired driving and DUI fatalities:

  • California,
  • Florida,
  • Georgia,
  • Illinois,
  • New York,
  • North Carolina,
  • Ohio,
  • Pennsylvania,
  • South Carolina, and
  • Texas.

This campaign, better known as the “Project Roadblock” initiative marks its 13th year in production as local broadcast stations donate airtime to relay the message of the dangers of driving while under the influence even at low-level alcohol consumption.

California defense attorney, California DUI lawyerSan Jose, the third largest city measured by population in California offers history, entertainment, and breathtaking landscapes. Nestled in the heart of Silicon Valley, San Jose has it all, including a very high rate of traffic-related fatalities. Unfortunately, this Southern California town also boasts a high number of driving under the influence (DUI) violations as it ranks in the top ten of cities with the highest drunk driving arrests and accidents, but San Jose law enforcement is fighting back.

To decrease the number of such accidents, San Jose has allotted extensive funding to such programs as sobriety checkpoints. The police department’s traffic enforcement unit periodically conducts publicized checkpoints to screen for those driving under the influence.

San Jose vigilance on drunk driving is so intense that the city council recently asked law enforcement if perhaps they were being a bit overzealous in their attempts to combat this problem.
