Driving Under the Influence is a serious criminal offense. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every day about 37 people in the U.S. die in drunk-driving related crashes. Although a DUI may not seem that big of a deal since it is perceived as a traffic violation, it can have catastrophic effects in many different areas of your life you may not anticipate. Some examples would be stress on your family life, employment, and ability to drive to name a few. 

While it is true that a DUI is technically a traffic violation, it’s a traffic violation that can land you in jail for up to 364 days for the first offense. A second offense DUI could lead to prison for an extended period. There are several more favorable alternate consequences, which is why it’s imperative to have a seasoned attorney advocating on your behalf like the attorneys at Lafata Law.

Along with possible jail time, a DUI can suspend your license. This could lead to headaches down the road, not to mention the high fines and fees you can expect to pay to get your license reinstated.
