New Hampshire bills sets conditions for driverless cars

The thought of driverless cars hitting the roads is something that many people are worried about. Even though drivers already use tools like cruise control, a fully autonomous vehicle is still a frightening prospect. For drivers in New Hampshire, there is a chance that automated vehicles will take the roads by January of 2019.

Drunk and drugged driving charges are very serious

Getting behind the wheel of a vehicle when you aren't in your right mind is a bad idea, no matter the cause of why you aren't in your right mind. Our previous blog post discussed how you can face criminal charges because of drugged driving. This is a similar charge to drunk driving.

Drugged driving can lead to criminal charges

When you drive, you must be in your right mind so that you can drive safely. If you have been drinking or have taken any medications or drugs, you might not be able to legally drive. Some people don't realize that they can face criminal charges for driving under the influence of drugs.

Think about the variables that might impact your DUI defense

When you are accused of drunk driving, there are a lot of variables that can impact how your case is resolved. Each of those variables is a potential defense point. We know that you might have some questions about what variables you need to focus on when you are trying to decide on a defense. This isn't always an easy decision to make, but we can help you sort through the case and determine what to do.

How to determine whether or not to take a Breathalyzer test

Different states interpret a driver's refusal to take a Breathalyzer test differently. In some cases, in acquiring a driver's license, an individual consents to having their blood, breath, or urine obtained and tested by an officer when drunk driving is suspected. In others, while a driver can refuse to submit to a Breathalyzer test or having their blood alcohol content (BAC) tested, there are still penalties for doing so. These may be far less serious than risks associated with blowing over the limit.

Understand what might happen after an alleged drunk driving crash

Drunk driving accidents add another element to drunk driving cases because these incidents often lead to additional criminal charges. In some cases, they can also lead to civil claims against you. Criminal and civil cases occur in different courts, so they are independent of each other. This means that you can be found not guilty of the drunk driving related charges, but still be found liable in civil court. The opposite can also happen.
