When your spouse is charged with drunk driving

DUI charges can be difficult whenever they arise, but when a loved one is charged with drunk driving it can be especially difficult for a number of reasons. For example, someone may lose respect for their child or spouse when drunk driving charges emerge, and these allegations can also create a rift within a couple’s relationship. Unfortunately, this can make it even harder for someone who has been charged with operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol to move forward in their life.

How does a DUI affect travel?

If you have a DUI conviction in Massachusetts, and you enjoy international travel, you may find there are limits as to where you can go. While a DUI generally does not affect your ability to travel within the United States, there are some countries that see it as a felony and restrict entry. This is another good reason why you should hire an attorney to help you fight the charge of drinking and driving.

Underage drinking and breath test refusal

When someone is pulled over for DUI, they may be flooded with uncertainty and negative emotions such as extreme stress and fear. This can be a very difficult position to find yourself in, to say the least. Some people decide to refuse a breath test for various reasons, but it is important to be aware that doing so may lead to various consequences. We have discussed many of the consequences of breath test refusal and drunk driving in general on our blog. However, it is important to remember that a driver's age may also have an impact on the consequences they face.

Cold medication and driving do not mix

If you are taking medication for a cold or the flu and think you are ok to drive in Massachusetts, you should probably think again. As with other types of drugs, both prescription and over-the-counter medication for colds and the flu come with side effects that can impair your ability to drive. This can lead to arrest and even conviction of driving under the influence, even if you did not consume any alcohol.
