Bethesda DUI Lawyer
There are a few reasons why DUI is actually quite common in Bethesda and its surrounding cities such as Potomic and Chevy Chase. It has a popular nightlife area with people of all ages, and the nightlife areas usually attract police officers by the handful. There is also a lack of nighttime public transportation around the downtown area, and many people are forced to drive in and out. Wisconsin Avenue is the main street that runs through downtown Bethesda and is also where many of the popular bars are located. Police also know that Wisconsin Avenue is one of the more direct routes in and out of Washington D.C., and cops will often hide out along the street waiting for suspected drunk drivers to leave D.C. Bethesda is not an incorporated city, and therefore it does not have its own police force. The Montgomery County police patrol the city and it surrounding areas, and they understand where and when most DUI cases occur. Chances are that you will not see a great deal of Montgomery police cars in the area during the day, but at night and especially weekend nights they seem to appear.
