Any individual who consumes an alcohol drink and chooses to drive runs the risk of being arrested for a DUI, thus DUI’s are perhaps the most common offense that occurs in our society. As a result, law enforcement has increased their efforts to nab potential offenders by increasing road patrols and using roadblocks.
Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to be “trashed” or “drunk” to be charged but yet, most of those arrested are charged after consuming only a couple of drinks. Another misconception is that DUIs are limited to alcohol. In fact, individuals who use prescription medications and consume alcohol may also be impaired despite following their doctor’s orders.
