Drunk driving happens, but do the laws preventing it work?

According to the Pacific Institute for Research & Evaluation (PIRE), impaired driving is involved in close to 40% of the motor vehicle accidents that occur on Wisconsin roads. The organization further claims that an impaired motorist drives one out of every 130 miles driven throughout the state. Drunk driving does occur in the state of Wisconsin; however, local law enforcement's focus on incarcerating intoxicated drivers may not be the only way to improve safety conditions on Wisconsin roads and highways.

Can I challenge the sobriety testing that led to my arrest?

Once an officer gets a Wisconsin driver out of his car, it can be tough for that driver to refuse to submit to field sobriety testing. The battery of coordination and memory tests that the officer may impose on the driver can rattle the concentration of even the most sober individuals. As a result, officers can make mistakes in their assessments of suspected drunk drivers and charge individuals who consumed no alcohol before their traffic stops with drunk driving charges.

Facing a drunk driving crime in Wisconsin can be damaging to a person's reputation and well-being. When the charge forces a person to surrender his license or pay a high fine, the financial health of the individual and his family can be directly impacted. When the accusation is more serious and imprisonment is a potential penalty, the individual can face losing his rights and spending substantial time behind bars.

Aggressive defense is key when facing DUI charges

When a person is charged with a DUI offense he can feel like he is completely alone. Even if he is supported by his family and friends in the Sheboygan community he may feel that no one understands the embarrassment and frustration of being charged with an alcohol-related crime. Taking a proactive approach to defending oneself against pending DUI charges can be the first step a person can take to overcome the allegations.
