Word has leaked out that Hamilton County, in association with local traffic enforcement authorities throughout the state, will be increasing impaired driving enforcement activities throughout the month of March.
Curiously, one of the main focal points as to why March has been selected for increased impaired driving enforcement has apparently been the presence of the St. Patrick’s day holiday.
Although St. Patrick’s day has proven to be a big social boon for business among various Hamilton County establishments throughout the county, this success has apparently focused attention upon the possibility for Hamilton County law enforcement authorities to accumulate large numbers of dui arrests.
With such fertile prospects with which to justify receipt of federal law enforcement funding, Hamilton County authorities have appeared to earmark March as a month in which they can best justify actionable arrests in return for the federal funding received.
As a result, please be aware that the revelry often accompanied by the increasing prominence of this enjoyable St. Patrick’s celebration in Hamilton County may very well draw adverse attention to motorist conduct specifically as related to this particular holiday season.
It is often difficult to discern the times of year when motorist enforcement will be at its peak for drunk driving enforcement. However, although somewhat irritating to learn that we must all have thoughts of traffic enforcement foremost in our thoughts this March when enjoying St. Paddy’s day, please be especially appreciative that we may all become pro actively prepared to guard against any potential arrest that can otherwise impair enjoyment of another great holiday season.
Please take time to review any and all information that has been disseminated among Hamilton County publications to learn how to best steer clear of any problem areas that may prove to become focal points for traffic related arrests in Hamilton County this month.
Although I would anticipate that the time period at or near the time of the St. Patrick’s day holiday will become the peak period of impaired driving enforcement this month, increased detection activity may very well be prevalent throughout the month.
“High visibility patrols,” will be looking at any moment to produce prized dui arrests within Hamilton County. Whether it be through the implementation of presently unannounced sobriety checkpoints or refocused priorities upon single car enforcement of any suspicious driving activity, this month is one in which to be especially careful when operating a motor vehicle within Hamilton County.
