It’s a long holiday weekend and you’ve heard the state police are conducting checkpoints in various places in the next few days. They conduct these checkpoints with good reason. According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA), almost 29 people die in alcohol impaired-related vehicle crashes in the U.S. every day.
If you’re lucky enough to be awarded bail and have the means to pay it, you’ll want to make sure you do everything right because if you don’t, you could be sent to jail until your trial. This is the intention of bail―to ensure that you’ll show up for trial and abide by the rules in the meantime.
