Reasonable suspicion is vital in drunk driving cases

This Easter weekend, people are going to head out to gatherings with family members and friends. Making sure that you have a suitable way to get home is imperative if the gathering will include alcoholic beverage offerings. One thing that you shouldn't ever do is assume that you are sober enough to make it home after you've had a couple of drinks.

Officers sometimes use reasonable suspicion to initiate a stop

Now that the warmer months are here, people are going to be out enjoying bonfires and outdoor activities with friends. There are many things that go on at these events. One of them is that alcoholic beverages might be present. If this is the case, anyone who is driving must ensure that they avoid the drinks or they might run the risk of facing a drunk driving charge.

Drunk driving crashes can lead to serious legal problems

Being charged with drunk driving is a very serious matter. While many people face this situation, there are some people who have more to worry about than just the drunk driving charge. When there is a wreck that involves a drunk driver, there can be other matters that the defendant has to worry about.

Drugged driving defenses have interesting options

While you might be tempted think about drunk driving as being related only to alcohol, this isn't at all the case. You can face these types of charges if your driving ability is impaired by other substances like legal medications or illegal drugs. It is imperative that you take the time to find out how anything you use or ingest is going to affect your abilities before you get behind the wheel.

Increased patrols around New Year's aim to stop impaired drivers

Police departments around the nation are in the midst of the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign. This is a good time for people in New Hampshire to make plans for sober rides home on the New Year's Eve holiday. Police officers around Derry and elsewhere will be more watchful than usual for signs of impairment.

Your defense strategy impacts a DUI case considerably

A person who drives drunk is going to face a lengthy court process because of the charges. They might not face this the first time they drive drunk; however, they will probably be caught eventually. If you are accused of drunk driving, you need to think about your options so that you can decide what to do. These decisions are important and some are time sensitive so starting your defense plan quickly is imperative.

Ignition interlocks are required in some drunk driving cases

Some individuals who are convicted of drunk driving will be required to have an ignition interlock installed on their vehicle. This device requires that driver of the vehicle to blow into it. The breath is checked for the presence of alcohol. If the result is higher than a preset limit, the vehicle won't start. If you are sentenced to have one installed, you can only drive a vehicle with the device. It will also require periodic breath samples during your journey.

Don't try to ignore drunk driving charges

Summer bonfires and other events can be fun times for everyone involved. Some of these activities might involve drinking alcohol. If you don't plan properly, you might end up having to get behind the wheel after drinking. This isn't a good situation, as it can lead to drunk driving charges. We know that you didn't think this would happen, but it is a sad reality for a good number of people each summer.
