Anyone who drinks alcohol and drives a motor vehicle risks being arrested and charged with drunk driving. Law enforcement officers everywhere have stepped up their efforts to keep intoxicated drivers off the road. One common misunderstanding is that a person needs to be “drunk” in order to be arrested for this offense. The reality is that many people are arrested for DUI after having only a few drinks. Unfortunately, a brief lapse in judgment can result in long-term negative consequences such as jail, a criminal conviction, and the loss of your driving privileges for an extended period of time.
In addition, more and more people are being arrested for “impaired driving” or driving while under the influence of prescription medication. These situations pose unique challenges because people may be arrested even though they are following their doctor’s orders.
