A lot of people tend to get a little queasy when they step into an airplane or get on a train because they are worried about something going wrong and getting into an accident. What these people do not realize is the number of deaths and accidents caused by cars outnumber the number of accidents and deaths by airplane or bus crashes by an exponential amount.
We are driving or in the car almost every other day, and we do not realize just how easy it is to get into a serious accident because we are so accustomed to it. When you add in being under the influence of drugs or alcohol on top of that, the likelihood of crashing or putting other people in danger is tenfold. If you have are ever in a situation with a DUI arrest charge against you, you should reach out to a lawyer.
DUIs are a big deal, and depending on the laws of the state you are in, you can end up behind bars, having your license confiscated, or having an extended ban on your driving with or without probation as well. If you are looking to lessen the extent of your charges, then the only way you can do that is by having a good lawyer by your side, ideally one that has extensive experience handling cases with DUI charges.
DUI might not seem like a big deal to some, but if you have had multiple DUI charges pressed against you, or have put yourself, someone else in the car with you in danger, or worse other cars and pedestrians in danger because of your reckless driving, then you can end up with serious criminal charges being pressed against you on top of the DUI charge, so you should take it seriously and call in a lawyer.
