Last week this Sheboygan drunk driving and DUI defense law blog highlighted just how prevalent drunk driving arrests are in Wisconsin when compared to similar arrests in the other 49 states. With many arrests occurring within the state’s borders it may seem as though police officers and prosecutors throughout the state would only bring charges against individuals who are truly in violation of Wisconsin’s drunk driving laws. What this blog has also highlighted, though, is the upsetting fact that drunk driving tests and assessments can be subjective and their results may erroneously suggest intoxication on the part of legally sober drivers.
Medications, medical conditions, weather conditions and a multitude of other factors can influence how a driver operates the person’s vehicle. If a sober driver is charged with drunk driving due to the presence of one of these factors at the time of the person’s arrest, the driver may have a defense to the charges. If he does not offer that defense to the court, however, the driver may miss the chance to have the person’s defense heard.
