Summer is here, bringing sunny days, family vacations, and unfortunately, more traffic on the roads. At Dasti & Staiger, Attorneys at Law, we understand the challenges that come with summer driving, including the increased risk of traffic violations and accidents.

Here are some tips to keep you safe and informed this season:

With schools out and families hitting the road for vacations, traffic congestion can become an issue. Increased traffic means a higher likelihood of accidents and traffic violations. To navigate busy roads safely, plan your trips during off-peak hours, use navigation apps to find less congested routes and always remain patient and alert.

During the summer months, certain traffic violations become more common. Speeding is a frequent issue as drivers are tempted to accelerate on clear, open roads. However, this increases the risk of accidents and large fines. Additionally, more drivers on the road can lead to more distractions, making it essential to keep your focus on the road and avoid using your phone while driving. Impatience in heavy traffic can also lead to dangerous decisions, such as running red lights and stop signs. Always adhere to traffic signals to avoid accidents and penalties.

Summer celebrations often involve alcohol, increasing the risk of drunk driving incidents. Drunk driving is not only illegal but also extremely dangerous. If you plan to drink, always designate a sober driver or use ride-sharing services. Remember, driving under the influence can lead to severe consequences, including license suspension, heaving fines and even jail time.

If you find yourself facing a traffic violation or DUI charge this summer, the attorneys of Dasti & Staiger are here to help. Our experienced team can provide the legal guidance you need to navigate these challenging situations. Stay safe and have a wonderful summer!
