Temptation is in the air and more opportunities arise for misbehaving, but our team will help you recover from these mistakes. We’ll also explore the typical summer crimes that people get involved in.
Why Are There More Crimes In the Summer?
Many opportunities arise during the summertime that make crimes easier to commit. For example, burglaries are much higher during the summer than in the winter because people go on vacation, leave their doors and windows open, or people just spend less time at home. These are perfect opportunities for burglars to invade homes.
Additionally, as the temperature rises, many people are generally uncomfortable. Well, this discomfort can turn into aggression, which can lead to aggressive criminal behavior. We all know that summers in Texas are very hot. This heat can very well be the instigator of criminal activity.
What Are the Typical Summer Crimes?
The typical summer crimes are murder, manslaughter, rape, arson, burglary, larceny, and assault with the intention to kill. These crimes increase by 10% during the summer months. With teenagers roaming around with extra time in their hands, petty crimes rise. The days are longer, so there are higher chances of committing these crimes when there is more time in a day. People have their guard down as well.
Impaired driving also increases during the summer months. The parties, beach days, barbeques, and campfires mean an increase in consuming alcohol. The hot weather also encourages people to drink nice, cold beverages. People lose track of the number of drinks they had or they take some risks and drink more than they are supposed to. Then, they hop into their car and drive off. The law enforcement officers know that summer is a high season for impaired driving, so their guard is up. Don’t think you are getting away. Officers oftentimes run saturation patrols to ensure that impaired drivers are kept off of the highway.
Similarly, impaired boating is another crime that rises in the summertime. Police offers will go boat to boat to check if the people driving the boat have been drinking.
