Reviewing statistics on drunk driving charges

Each year, many people are charged with driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. In Boston, and across the entire state of Massachusetts, these charges can upend lives in all sorts of ways. As one example, someone charged with DUI may have difficulty during their job search years later. Moreover, penalties such as fines and time behind bars can also make life very difficult.

According to the Department of Transportation, drunk driving has a high rate of arrest in comparison to other offenses. During 2010, over 1.4 million people were taken into custody due to allegations of driving under the influence of alcohol. For many people, life will change as a result of drunk driving allegations and may even have an impact on family members.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also provides useful statistics related to driving while drunk. In fact, a 2012 study which looked at the behavior of adults across the U.S. found that 2.2 percent reported that they had driven after consuming alcohol in the previous 30 days in the state of Massachusetts.

For those who are facing DUI charges, it is vital to take a careful look at all details surrounding the situation. After all, each case is unique and those who take steps to protect their future can, in some cases, obtain an end result that is more favorable. These are serious charges that many people find themselves facing and they can have a lasting impact on the futures of people from all walks of life.
