Going over data on underage drunk driving

A fact sheet which was published by the State of Indiana draws attention to some of the consequences of underage drunk driving. For example, those accused of DUI in Indianapolis may face harsh financial penalties, a prison term, and the loss of their driving privileges. In fact, those under the age of 21 may have to pay a reinstatement fee and have their license suspended if they are charged with drunk driving.

Protecting your CDL license

Having a commercial driver’s license places drivers under a great deal of responsibility. Not only are drivers handling a larger vehicle on the road, but there are many more federal and state laws to which they must adhere when driving. Some traffic offenses can lose drivers their license for which they have worked so hard. 

What you need to know about DUIs and CDLs

DUI defense on tap for Indiana prosecutor's office employee

Driving while under the influence of alcohol is a serious offense. When Indiana residents are charged with this crime, they must then start the process of building a strong DUI defense.

3 ways alcohol affects the teenage brain

While alcohol is considered a depressant in that it may cause unsteady movements, slurred speech, the inability to react quickly and disturbed perceptions, it can also be used for stimulant effects. Often, alcohol is used to help a person loosen up or relax and may suppress the parts of the brain that inhibit reactions. Once too much alcohol is consumed, the depressant effects start. This can have a negative effect on any person, and it may cause you to do things you would never do, like get behind the wheel of a car when you are under the influence.

DUI defense challenges increase after sentence enhancement filed

A situation has developed regarding a 48-year-old man who has been charged for intoxicated driving following a tragic fatal motor vehicle collision. The man was apparently convicted on similar charges in another state in 2005. Prosecutors in Indiana recently asked the criminal court judge presiding over the proceedings for enhanced sentencing if the man is convicted. That prospect makes his DUI defense all the more important.

Can technology save the world from drunk drivers?

While partying and having a good time is not a criminal offense, getting behind the wheel of a car after you've had too much to drink is. It seems like a no-brainer to not drive when you are under the influence, but alcohol lowers inhibitions and may make it easier to make bad choices you wouldn't have normally made. Scientists, law enforcement officers and lawmakers are constantly on the lookout for ways to protect the public from those who would drive drunk, and one technology has taken shape, hoping to provide solid results.

Know what affects a field sobriety test

If you have been pulled over under suspicion of DUI, it's likely that you will be given a field sobriety test to determine if you should be driving or not. These are standard in every state across the nation, and if you fail the test, it may signify that you've had too much to drink and shouldn't be driving.
