A myriad of factors, such as the time of day and driving conditions present when the arrests are made, the experience of the stopping police officers, the health of the suspected drunk drivers, and many other issues can influence if charges will be filed against an individual and what those charges might be. Because Wisconsin has on its books a variety of criminal laws related to driving while under the influence of alcohol, a variety of criminal defenses exist to challenge those differing allegations.

For example, if a Chicago driver's speedometer is not properly calibrated, then he may actually be driving faster or slower than the readout states.
