Arrested for Drunk Driving?
Retain an Olathe DUI Lawyer Today
When it comes to
traffic offenses, driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) is certainly one of the
most harshly penalized. Attempting to operate a vehicle after consuming
alcohol is extremely dangerous due to the driver's reduced awareness
and reflexes. Nevertheless, countless people step behind the wheel every
day while intoxicated. According to
KDOT statistics, over 65,000 accidents occurred in the year 2008,
over 3,300 of which involved alcohol.
In an attempt to reduce the number of injuries and fatalities caused by
drunk driving, law enforcement is often quick to make arrests and press
charges for DUI. This means that it is possible to be falsely accused
by an overzealous officer.
If you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated,
