It is commonly known that drinking and driving don't mix. Nevertheless, Tennessee courts are full of drivers facing DUI charges. Many people may not realize how a certain amount of alcohol can impair their judgment. A case involving an area school administrator may be a case in point.
It is common knowledge that drinking and driving don't mix. Some people may be unaware of how one or two drinks can impact their ability to safely drive a car. If pulled over, one may be accused of drunk driving, known as DUI. There are also people who habitually drive after having had more than one or two drinks. It may be that these are the people who are the target of legislation recently introduced in the Tennessee legislature.
Being arrested for a DUI in Tennessee can be a very unsettling experience. Being arrested for drunk driving when one has multiple such arrests may be terrifying and can result in the suspension of one's license and even more serious consequences. A recent accident involved a driver who had reportedly been arrested for 16 previous DUI infractions.
It is widely accepted that drinking and driving do not mix. Regardless of how well it is known and accepted, drunk driving accidents remain a problem that has not been solved. A Tennessee legislator is making an effort to reduce the number of DUI incidents in the state.
A man believed to be under the influence of drugs was arrested on the night of Jan. 8 following a traffic stop, according to local sources. The Tennessee Highway Patrol took the 33-year-old man into custody under suspicion of DUI. His passenger, a 27-year-old woman, was charged with drug possession. Both individuals were set to appear in court on Jan. 11.
If a driver sees another car swerving in and out of its lane it is common to suppose that the driver is either distracted or may possibly be drunk. It is never a good idea to drink and drive in Tennessee. However, there are other factors that may cause vehicles to swerve, such as temporary distractions or medical conditions.
Drinking and driving is never a good idea. While DUI is a violation of the law in Tennessee, it also poses a significant danger to the driver and others nearby. The holiday season is here and while that is no excuse, it does mean that there may be more drivers arrested for driving under the influence.
