Before issuing a DUI, law enforcement in Virginia generally first consider the suspect's behavior during the traffic stop. Police may look for such signs as smelling like alcohol and performing poorly on a field sobriety test. However, it is possible that a person who is on a low-carb diet might have breath test results that falsely register a blood alcohol content above the legal limit.
The holiday season is upon us. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, of course, but tonight is when you can expect to see the beginning of increased police presence in Front Royal and surrounding communities. Law enforcement agencies traditionally target drivers on the night before Thanksgiving because Thanksgiving eve is considered a heavy bar attendance night.
