Hangovers and DUI charges

Often, when people think about drunk driving, they imagine drivers who are currently imbibing or recently consumed alcoholic beverages. However, it is crucial to realize that driving while you are hungover may also lead to DUI charges. For example, if you take to the road in the early morning after drinking heavily hours earlier, your driving abilities may be impaired, and a law enforcement official may pull you over, which could result in drunk driving charges. Moreover, some people do not realize how long it takes for alcohol to leave their system and they unknowingly drive while they are over the legal limit.

Whether a driver knows that they are currently drunk, or they do not realize that their hangover could result in DUI charges if they are pulled over, the consequences can be significant. Across the country, many people have likely found themselves in this position following Halloween celebrations. Drunk driving charges can be disruptive with respect to your career, your driving privileges and even your reputation and relationships. Because of the serious nature of these charges, it is imperative for you to handle your drunk driving case with care.

There are many different factors that can affect the outcome of a DUI case. For example, someone may be accused of driving while they are drunk or hungover even though they have poor balance or struggle with vertigo, which causes them to fail a field sobriety test.
