Avoid drunk driving charges this holiday season

The best way to avoid a drunk driving charge is to avoid getting behind the wheel of an automobile after you have been drinking. However, some South Carolina residents find themselves in situations where it is difficult to determine whether they are sober enough to drive. Indeed, there is a line when it comes to drinking and driving, and sometimes individuals are not sure whether they have crossed it.

Driving after consuming alcohol always comes with risks because even with a small amount of alcohol in your system, it can affect the smell of your breath. If a police officer pulls you over and suspects you have indeed been drinking, then you may be subjected to a breathalyzer test and field sobriety tests.

A breathalyzer test will provide police with a reading on your blood alcohol concentration and the field sobriety test will inform police on your level of inebriation. Because there are countless intoxicants that could render a person unfit to driver, the breathalyzer test is not the only thing that police will use to arrest you. Indeed, simply failing a field sobriety test is enough.

If you or your loved one is pulled over and arrested on a drunk driving charge this holiday season, it could happen even if the driver did not drink a drop before getting behind the wheel. Also, just because a charge has occurred does not mean that a conviction will result.
