How common is drunk driving?

When it comes to driving under the influence, there are a plethora of factors to take into consideration. Those who are charged with drunk driving may face all sorts of consequences, such as time behind bars, the loss of their driving privileges, financial penalties, and even a damaged reputation or problems finding work. As a result, it is essential for drivers to avoid getting behind the wheel if they have had too much. Unfortunately, people continue to find themselves in this position and it is important for those facing charges to carefully review their options.

Accidentally driving while under the influence

Drunk driving charges carry a harsh stigma and when many people hear that someone was driving under the influence, they assume the worst. However, not everyone who is pulled over and accused of drunk driving was being reckless prior to being stopped by a law enforcement official. For example, some people have been falsely accused of DUI altogether. It is also important to point out that some people are charged with drunk driving even though they were not aware that they were over the legal limit. Unfortunately, these charges can present a number of serious consequences, even if the person accused of DUI was driving drunk on accident.

Moving forward after you have been charged with DUI

Sometimes, when people are pulled over and found to have alcohol in their system, they feel as if their worst nightmare has come true. People who are accused of DUI may be flooded with stress and negative thoughts, worried about how these charges will affect their relationships and even their job. After all, drunk driving has an incredibly harsh stigma and some people are concerned that they will never restore their good reputation. On top of these challenges, serious penalties, such as license suspension and time behind bars, may also lie ahead.

Looking at the consequences of underage DUI charges

When a driver of any age is accused of operating their vehicle while intoxicated due to alcohol or drug use, the charges are very serious. However, they can be especially damaging for certain people, such as a young person who has their entire life ahead of them. If you are a teen driver who was recently charged with drunk driving, or your child is facing charges over underage DUI allegations, it is critical to take a careful look at the details surrounding the case and approach these charges properly. In Portland, and all over Oregon, underage DUI charges can have short-term and long-term consequences for young drivers and their families.
