Do the police target happy hour for drunk drivers?

Happy hours are one of the many targets of police officers when looking for drunk drivers. As you head to your various happy hour locations for the weekend, remember that police officers sit outside of bars and restaurants, watching to see who will be driving under the influence of alcohol. All they need is a traffic violation to pull you over (i.e. speeding, changing lanes without signaling, swerving in and out of lanes, etc.). Once they pull you over, they will ask for your license and registration and smell your breath as you respond to their questions. If they smell any alcohol, you will begin to take sobriety tests to determine if you are driving under the influence. You will probably also take a breath test and if in violation, will most likely end up in jail. Simply put, make arrangements for a cab service or a designated driver but DO NOT drink and drive!
