If you have ever had a drink or two during a night out or at a sports event and have seen blue lights spinning in your rearview mirror, you know just how unnerving such an experience can be. If, after pulling your car over to the side of the road, authorities believe you may have consumed enough alcohol to exceed the legal limit, you can expect to be asked to take a breath test or a test used to determine your perceived level of impairment at the wheel.
A driving under the influence (DUI) arrest or conviction can be devastating to many areas of your life. Aside from having to pay all the court fees associated with a DUI, you could have your license suspended and maybe even serve some jail time. A DUI arrest or conviction will make it difficult to pass a background check which creates issues finding a steady job.
