Drunk driving is a mistake, and you have to defend yourself

Let's say that you go out to your local establishment with a few friends on a Thursday night. You and your buddies have been doing this for many months. Every couple of weeks or so, you get together to have a couple of drinks and just catch up. You've never had a problem with this, and every happy hour you've been to before this one, you've always enjoyed two drinks and then a glass of water.

You drive home a couple of hours later and all is well. You never wavered on the road. There was never any indication you were intoxicated at all. In fact, you suspect that, at worst, you would have registered a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.03 or 0.04 on a breath test. In actuality, it may have been different -- but to you and, objectively, to the world around you, you were not driving drunk.

But this one night, you decide to have an additional drink. And for some reason, you still decide to drive home. It's a mistake you'll later regret, because you swerve a little on the road and a cop pulls you over. A breath test shows your BAC to be 0.09 and you are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.

The circumstances, though not necessarily the outcome, happens all the time across this country. The outcome also happens quite a bit. Just because someone makes this mistake doesn't mean they are a bad person -- but a DUI charge carries these personifications, and that's unfortunate.

With that in mind, anyone accused of a DUI needs a criminal defense attorney to help them fight off their charge, or at least limit the damage that charge may do to them -- and at Sayer, Regan & Thayer, we can do just that.
