You know how some people have very little tolerance to alcohol and will get drunk after maybe just one or two drinks, while others chug drink after drink and still remain in control of themselves? Well, you may be able to hold your drink really well and remain functional throughout the time you’re drinking but if an officer finds you with a blood- alcohol concentration level of over 0.08%, they’re going to take you in for driving under the influence.
Officers don’t care how well you can hold your drink because they have a quantified value of BAC which they can use against you. If you’re caught driving under the influence, then there’s no point in trying to talk your way out of it. The best thing you can do is to hire a DUI defense lawyer to represent you and prove that you were in no way a danger to yourself or to anyone around you while you were stopped by law enforcement.
Depending on what substance you took while driving, your DUI offense might even land you in jail. People drive after smoking some weed, taking an Adderal or after having a drink or two all the time. This doesn’t mean that they should but sometimes some people are okay to drive when on some substance. You can’t explain this to law enforcement but with a DUI defense lawyer representing you in court, you’ll be able to make the legal system acknowledge you as an individual who could be cut some slack.
You may end up having to pay a penalty fee but your record could be saved and most importantly, you might be exempted from having to do jail time.
