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.

Impaired driving stems from a host of substances

Impaired driving is a serious matter because it can lead to serious injuries and criminal charges. What many people don't realize is that alcohol isn't the only substance that can lead to this type of criminal charge. For some individuals, drugs are going to be the impairing substance.

Summer months can be ruined by drunk driving charges

The summer months are a time for friends and family members to get together and enjoy the beautiful weather. At some of these events, there might be adult beverages. It is imperative that anyone who is going to enjoy these takes the time to plan on a way to get home without having to get behind the wheel. You can use a designated driver or a ride share program if necessary.

What are the elements of a drunk driving offense?

Many people think about a drunk driving charge coming when the vehicle is being driven erratically or recklessly. The truth is that a person can face one even if he or she is driving slowly or maybe not even driving at all. This is because of the wording in the applicable laws.

Drunk driving cases require careful attention to detail

People who are facing drunk driving cases need to make sure that they aren't trying to hide from the charges. As tempting as it is to just ignore the case, you have to be proactive when you are in this position. Instead of trying to forget about the case, use the time between the arrest and the court date to work on a defense. We can help you with this.

Even legal medication can lead to impaired driving charges

Impaired driving charges can come from a host of situations. One of these is when a person takes legal drugs. These can include ones for sale at the local big box store or those that are prescribed by a doctor. The only thing that matters in these cases is that the drug impairs the driver's ability to drive the vehicle.
