Prescription medications can cause DWI charges

One question a lot of people have is if they can face trouble with the law if their medications make them drive dangerously. The answer is yes because no matter what the cause is if you're driving dangerously, you're putting yourself and others in harm's way. You can be arrested for driving under the influence even if you're prescribed the medications that are influencing your behaviors.

DWI dangers: How intoxicated are you, really?

When you decide to go out and drink alcohol, you do so with the understanding that you may become impaired. Everyone reacts to alcoholic drinks and mixtures differently. It is impossible to predict how you will react to a drink every single time. Your weight, height, fat content and many other factors impact the way you will react to alcohol being in your system.

Should you use a designated driver?

DWIs can take place anywhere and may even happen when you're not in a car. You could get a DWI while driving a boat or even while riding a lawnmower in some situations. Using any vehicle while under the influence puts you in a position where you could be stopped, accused of driving drunk and arrested.

Yes, you can fight back against DWI charges

A DWI is one charge that will quickly change your life. Even if you don't end up with a conviction, it may impact your ability to work or could harm your reputation. Your friends or family may be shocked at the arrest, and you might have to miss work or other important parts of your life to go to court.

Driving when intoxicated can quickly cause problems for you. If you cause a crash, you could be charged for harming or killing another person on top of being intoxicated and reckless. Even worse, if you have passengers or children in your vehicle, you could face penalties that are much more significant, going as far as to threaten your ability to keep custody of your child in the most severe cases.

Your DWI could affect others, even without an accident

There are many ways that a DWI can change the way your future looks. You might lose your job or have difficulties getting there on time. People around you may develop a negative opinion of you. Financially, you could be stressed by the pressure of paying for the DWI's fines and fees while also trying to keep or find a new job.
