Fatigue shouldn't lead to a drunk driving charge

Trying to get home after a night out with friends can be a real challenge. You might have to contend with traffic; however, there is another hazard that you might face. What happens if you are fatigued and not driving in the best manner? Have you ever thought about what you'd do if you are pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving? There is a chance that you might face an arrest even if you didn't have a drop of alcohol to drink.

You might think that a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test, such as a breath or blood test, will clear you. This isn't always the case. What if the police officer thinks that you're impaired due to another factor, such as drugs? They might still charge you with impaired driving. We know that this is a troubling thing to think about, but it does happen sometimes.

When you are facing a criminal charge for this and you know that you weren't impaired, but that you were just a bit sleepy, you need to get started on your criminal defense right away. There are many options that you might have for these cases. It is imperative that you start working on this right away so that you can vet out each one and find out how it might affect you.

There isn't any reason why you should have to deal with a drunk driving conviction just because you were fatigued. This isn't going to be an easy journey, but we can help you throughout the case. Our goal is to show what really happened so that you don't have to deal with that type of conviction.
