Planning is the key to avoiding a DUI or planning a DUI defense

We recently discussed how a drunk driving arrest might not be prevented by the results of a breath test, even when the breath test finds that you are under the legal limit. This might trouble some of our readers, but it is imperative to understand this concept just in case you are ever in a position that has that point as a factor. We know that people who have been drinking and see the police car pulling them over might feel fearful. This is understandable, but you need to try to focus on your rights and what is going on.

Breath tests might not stop a DUI

When you are pulled over and the police officer thinks you are intoxicated, you might be asked to take a breath test. This might be the case if the officer saw you drive in a manner that makes him or her think that you were impaired or if you reek of alcohol when you are pulled over.

All criminal charges demand action, even probation violations

We recently discussed how drunk driving charges can have a negative impact on your probation status. This is only one aspect of your life that you must be sure to think about when you are on probation. There are conditions for every probation program that you must comply with or you run the risk of facing violations.

DUIs can have a negative impact on your probation status

When you are on probation, you have to abide by specific conditions of the program. Making sure that you follow the program rules is one way that you can make sure that you get off paper on schedule. One way that you can affect your probation status is getting another criminal charge, such as a drunk driving charge.

Drunk driving convictions have long-lasting impacts

Drunk driving charges are very serious charges that can have very serious impacts that go far beyond the court-imposed penalties if you are found guilty. One of the ways that you might be impacted is through your insurance. When you have a DUI on your record, your insurance rates are likely going to increase. This might not happen right away, but when the insurance company sees the drunk driving hit on your driving record, it will likely happen.
