Let’s face it. Driving with alcohol in your system is simply not a good idea. No matter where you are in the world, laws regarding driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI), and operating while intoxicated (OWI) exist, and carry a range of penalties and fines, that can be very financially and personally problematic. Choosing a designated driver, finding a place away from your vehicle to “sleep it off,” or even walking home, are all ways to avoid finding yourself stopped by police after a night out on the town, or a party at a friend’s house or your place of work.
However, these options are not always available, and the end result is that you find yourself behind the wheel of a vehicle with a blood alcohol level above the legal limit. You took a prescription drug that is reacting badly with something you drank or ate, and you are exhibiting “drunk-like” behavior, for example. Or your designated driver is more drunk than you are, and you became the only option for a trip home on a freezing cold night. In scenarios such as the aforementioned, help from a lawyer with experience in DUI cases can be extremely beneficial. If you are in Florida, the lawyers at Mayberry Law Firm can help ensure that all of the facts relating to your DUI arrest are presented appropriately, and that your case results in a satisfactory conclusion.
