The roadside crosses are heartbreaking.
Often white, sometimes plywood, the crosses vary in sizes but not in sentiment. Covered on silk flowers, ribbons, and sometimes pictures, each cross symbolizes a life lost. Placed as both a memorial for family members and a cautionary reminder for other drivers, these crosses are both heartbreaking and alarming. Knowing that a life was lost for every cross is a reminder to watch the road and make wise decisions about when you should be behind the wheel of any automobile.
You do not have to be the family of a victim of a car accident, though, to be impacted be those little white crosses along the highway. Anyone who has narrowly escaped a serious car accident or who has avoided a devastating driving and drinking charge may also be acutely aware of these crosses. In fact, without a DUI lawyer many people may find themselves locked up behind bars, not even out about to see these crosses.
DUI Attorneys Can Help You Understand the Trial Process
If you find yourself arrested for driving while intoxicated, you likely understand the stress that can come from not knowing what is next. The decision to work with a DUI lawyer can help you, however, navigate the difficult process that follows. In fact, it is very often wise to get advice from a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
Consider some of these facts and figures about the need for criminal defense and DUI lawyers:

  • More than 3.1 lawyers practice in the U.S.
  • 90 people died each day in 2014 motor vehicle crashes. Another 6,400 people were injured.
  • DUI convictions can cost $20,000 or more.
  • 660,000 drivers are using cell phones or manipulating electronic devices while driving at any given daylight moment across America.
  • Engaging in visual-manual subtasks like dialing and texting, or even reaching for a phone, and other activities associated with the use of hand-held phones and other portable devices increase the risk of getting into a crash by as much as three times.
  • 6% is the projected growth in the number of lawyers between the years 2014 and 2024, about as fast as the average for all occupations.
