Drunk Driving Archives

Should you take a field sobriety test or not?

Spending a portion of your day on the side of a Tennessee roadway, looking into the eyes of a police officer who has pulled you over in traffic, is probably not your idea of fun. Perhaps you're among many motorists in this state or others who have incurred a speeding ticket a time or two in the past. While it's not a good thing to get points against your license, facing a fine for traveling a few miles over a posted speed limit is not likely to ruin your life. Facing criminal charges for drunk driving might, however.

Know what to do if you're pulled over for a DUI

Drunk driving can quickly result in fines and penalties that affect you now and in the future. You may find yourself struggling to maintain a job, go to school or protect your reputation. It's vital for people who make the mistake of driving after having alcohol to remember that this single situation could negatively impact them for years to come.

Defenses are important for underage drinking charges

Driving under the influence of alcohol at any age is a problem, but when you're under 21, it's a particularly negative offense. Under Tennessee's laws, you've violated the Drug Free Youth Act. This act applies to people between the ages of 13 to 17 with certain drugs and between the ages of 18 and 21 for alcohol offenses.

DUI up 60 percent on Tennessee college campuses

Universities are a popular destination for DUI incidents to occur. Most students reach the legal drinking age during college and many attend parties that offer alcoholic beverages. Since this may be your first time trying these drinks, you may not have a set plan on how to get back to your room safely or you do not know how blood-alcohol concentration works.
