The holiday season is a time of merriment. More of us eat, drink, and enjoy the season. Unfortunately, drinking alcoholic beverages can increase the odds of arrest for DUI. That’s because Texas law enforcement officers are looking for drunk drivers this time of year:

  • Statistics show that more alcohol-related road deaths happen from the Thanksgiving to New Year’s holidays.
