On driver's license loss, and why it's more complex than you think

We've talked about the immense consequences of a drunk driving charge before on this blog, and why consulting with and eventually hiring a criminal defense attorney after a DUI charge is absolutely vital. The breadth, depth and variety of punishment that is available for people accused of and/or convicted of a drunk driving charge can leave a person with few options to rebuild their life in the weeks, months and years that follow the charge.

One of these punishments is the suspension or loss of the individual's driver's license. Losing your driver's license for any amount of time can complicate your life, and the lives of others, in an immeasurable way.

For example, your job may depend on your ability to operate a motor vehicle. Or in a slight variation of that situation, you may need your vehicle to get to work (let's say your job is 90 minutes away from your home). These situations can leave someone reeling not just from their lack of being able to drive a car -- they will also punish the individual financially. They could lose their job or their ability to find a job.

There are other situations where the loss of a license can really impede your life and others. You may have family members that rely on you to give them frequent rides to medical facilities. You may have friend who count on you for transportation because they don't have a car. You may have an emergency scenario that you aren't able to respond to in a timely fashion because you aren't allowed to just jump in a car and get to where you need to be.

It all comes back to defending yourself after a DUI charge. Don't let your license go so easily -- call us at Sayer Regan & Thayer and we'll help you defend your case and protect your livelihood.
