What is the difference between a suspension and revocation?

This Wisconsin drunk driving defense legal blog has previously discussed how a driver's license may be suspended or revoked if he is convicted of a DUI or alcohol-based driving offense. Though each has to do with the loss of the driver's license for a period of time, this post will look a little more closely at what it means to have one's driver's license suspended or revoked for drunk driving.

Man's drunk driving arrest shows what police look for during stop

A Wisconsin man was recently arrested on his seventh drunk driving offense and will now face a felony charge due to his prior arrests. The story of his seventh OWI arrest, however, provides readers of this DUI and drunk driving defense law blog with some insight into what law enforcement officials look for when they stop individuals on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

Our firm offers a diverse DUI defense practice

No two DUI or drunk driving arrests on Wisconsin roads are the same. 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.

Breathalyzer calibration can affect drunk driving arrest outcomes

If a machine is not properly calibrated then it may not provide accurate readings of the units it is intended to measure. 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. Thus, many machines require regular calibration to ensure that they are operating properly, including those machines that police departments use to measure the content of alcohol in people's systems.

Drunk driving while operating a commercial vehicle

The jobs that Sheboygan residents perform are highly varied. Some people work in offices and spend their days behind desks. Others are on their feet all day in factories or on construction sites. Still others operate vehicles such as trucks, buses, and other commercial rigs to carry people and things to the places where they need to go.
