Dodge County Criminal Defense LawyerWhether you are taking a cross country road trip, a weekend getaway, or just on your regular commute to work, the roads during the summer season present the risk of accidents and the resulting injuries. Car accidents, speeding and reckless driving, and operating while intoxicated all carry the risk of criminal charges. By taking steps to drive safely, you and your family can enjoy the drive and have a fun summer.

Avoid Traffic Violations in Wisconsin

By driving safely, planning ahead, and maintaining your vehicle, you can help to prevent potentially dangerous situations. Here are some tips to staying safe on the roads.

Drive safely – It is good advice throughout the years to slow down, obey the speed limit and traffic signals, and watch out for other drivers on the road. Limit the distraction in the car while you are driving so you can concentrate on the road and the vehicles around you. Construction zones are more common during the summer too, and they can present dangers such as narrow lanes, reduced speeds, construction workers, and slow-moving construction vehicles. Failure to follow the rules of the road can lead to speeding and reckless driving charges, and in more serious cases felony use of a motor vehicle or even homicide charges involving the use of a motor vehicle.

Take care of your vehicle – Make sure your vehicle is in good operating condition, especially before taking any long trip. Basic maintenance should be done to prevent any mechanical problems from increasing the potential for accidents. In summer, it is important to make sure your engine has enough coolant to prevent overheating. Make sure your tires are properly inflated. This will help get better gas mileage, but also with the car’s handling, especially on wet roads after a summer thunderstorm.

Avoid DUI/OWIs - Wisconsin police take operating a vehicle while intoxicated very seriously. For a first offense, you run the risk of having your license revoked, paying fines, and having an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle. The more offenses, the greater the penalties you will incur, including larger, longer license revocation, jail time, and even felony charges. It’s best to enjoy responsibly, have a designated driver, or call a cab or rideshare.
