DUI charges are a serious offense. Thereís no doubt about it. Most charges stemming from driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will result in a stiff fine, loss of your driverís license, and even a stint in jail. If youíre arrested for DUI itís a good idea to obtain legal counsel from one or more DUI attorneys.

Driving under the influence means that while operating your vehicle you were either impaired due to the consumption of alcohol and, or in combination with, drugs. It can also mean that your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) exceeded a .08. To convict you of a DUI charge the police officer needs only to prove one of these elements of the offense.

The first part of the offense is driving while impaired. The presumption is that you are impaired, you cannot safely drive your car. If you were unable to operate your vehicle in a safe and legal manner and it can be showed that you were impaired by either alcohol or drugs. The officer will bring into evidence your physical state, the things you said, how you were driving and the results of any Standardized Field Sobriety Tests that you performed. These tests were developed by the National Highway Safety Administration and are very effective in allowing an officer to be able to determine that you have a BAC of .10 or mroe. If the sum total of the officerís observations provide him with probable cause to believe you operated the vehicle while impaired, youíll be arrested and charged.

The second part of the offense involves your Blood Alcohol Content, or the amount of alcohol in your blood, breath, or urine. If your BAC is at or above .08, there is probable cause to believe that youíve committed the DUI offense whether you or anyone else feels that you were truly impaired. The BAC is determined by a breath, blood or urine test.
