Spring break and drunk driving charges

On Behalf of | Apr 19, 2019 | Drunk Driving Charges

People are pulled over for driving under the influence at all times of the year, but DUI charges may be especially likely on certain occasions. For example, spring break can lead to more people getting behind the wheel while they are over the legal limit, and those who were recently charged with DUI over spring break may be very worried about how these charges will affect their future. From problems related to one’s career to difficulties that arise regarding college (which is especially notable since many college students participate in spring break parties that involve alcohol), it is crucial to handle these charges correctly.

Sometimes, people are charged with drunk driving even though they did not know that they were over the legal limit. Moreover, some people may even be charged with DUI even though their blood alcohol content level was below the legal limit. For example, a breathalyzer test may not be conducted properly. Unfortunately, some people are unaware of their rights and fail to take action in such instances, which can result in a multitude of hardships that will follow them throughout their lives.

Drunk driving charges can be incredibly devastating, and the consequences of these charges may haunt people years into the future. Spring break can be especially difficult because some younger drivers are subjected to peer pressure or they may find themselves in positions where they drive after drinking even though they normally would never do such a thing.
