During holidays like Halloween, drivers in Missouri and Kansas should be aware of an increased police presence. Many people are not aware that police departments throughout the area have scheduled extra officers during the Halloween season. Halloween is one of the top five days for DUI’s, arrests, car accident injuries, and fatalities.
THE SCRUGGS LAW FIRM TIPS
Wear seat belts and follow all traffic rules- Police officers will be looking to make traffic stops so even the most minor infraction can result in a moving violation.
If you are going to a party, utilize Uber/Lyft - Police departments will be aware of the high populated areas. Even drivers who have the proper paperwork and have not been drinking are at risk for being accused of DUI in these nightlife areas.
If you disagree with a ticket, fully cooperate on the scene, then contact a lawyer- African Americans are %85 more likely to be pulled over by police in the state of Missouri. This number is likely to increase during the Halloween season. If you are unfairly pulled over, seek a lawyer.
