Thanksgiving weekend in New Hampshire goes without traffic fatalities

It seems everyone in New Hampshire had at least one thing to be thankful for over the holiday weekend just over ten days ago: there were no fatal traffic accidents in the state.

Recently, the New Hampshire State Police released their arrest and traffic stop statistics for Thanksgiving weekend. It seems their efforts to impose an increased presence on Granite State roads paid off.

Nearly 4,000 vehicles were stopped by troopers over the break, which is known as a particularly dangerous period due to families traveling for the holiday and larger numbers of people celebrating the season. A total of 31 DWI arrests were made throughout the state, according to Sergeant Matthew Shapiro.

Shapiro also said in his statement to the press on behalf of the department that a number of the arrests were made because other drivers on the road reported erratic vehicles.

Thanking the concerned citizens, Shapiro wrote, "The men and women of the State Police appreciate the public's assistance in removing impaired drivers from our roadways."

Of the 3,914 traffic stops, more than 1,000 resulted in tickets and arrests for hazardous driving, driving on a suspended license and other criminal offenses, presumably on outstanding warrants.

Shapiro finished up his statement by summarizing, "The New Hampshire State Police are committed to ensuring safe travel throughout the state and will continue our efforts to reduce collisions in the upcoming holiday season."

Though no one should drive after consuming alcohol during the holidays or at any time of the year, if you have been accused of DUI in the Granite State, consult an expert New Hampshire DWI attorney like one of those at Stephen C. Brown & Associates. Our professional lawyers can argue your case in court and ensure that you receive fair consideration.
