Thanksgiving Holiday Travelers in Birmingham, Hoover, Pelham, Trussville, Homewood, Tuscaloosa, Vestavia, Mountain Brook, Gardendale, Fultondale, Leeds, Moody, Pell City, Huntsville, Montgomery, Florence, Scottsboro, Mobile and throughout Alabama should be aware that Alabama is again "taking back the highways." Governor Bob Riley and the Alabama Department of Public Safety have joined forces once again to flood the Alabama roadways with police officers looking for any excuse to make money. They intend to target speeding, failure to yield the right of way, following too closely, driver inattention, and DUI. These speed traps are just another means of raising revenue. I guess the Governor has decided that the people of Alabama are more secure by having its police on the roadways instead of protecting our communities. And I have a question, how do you target driver inattention? Make sure you don't drive through a fast food joint for a burger on the way to grandma's house this thanksgiving, it might get you a ticket. If you are charged with an Alabama DUI, a speeding or other traffic ticket this Thanksgiving, make sure to call an experienced Alabama DUI and Criminal Defense attorney and lawyer. Remember, refuse to take a field sobriety test, a breath test or any test administered by an Alabama police officer or their agents without the presence of your attorney. Know your rights and fight back! The nanny state of Alabama, lead by the MADD Mothers Against Drunk Driving and money hungry bureaucrats, is at it again.
