Protecting the Privilege of Driving

May 15, 2008
From what I hear about California traffic, it seems like the roads would be too jam-packed to allow police officers to pick out the people driving under the influence, but if I guess it still happens. And, if you are caught driving under the influence (DUI), there can be some pretty serious consequences in store.

If you appeal for a trial before your license is automatically suspended, a Los Angeles DUI lawyer can help you challenge the evidence against your case whether it includes your driving behavior at the time of arrest, chemical test results, sobriety tests or your physical appearance when a police officer stopped you.

Although there are many indicators of DUI in these four categories, there are also other factors that can create these indicators besides alcohol. For example, speeding and swerving are two driving behaviors that police officers often associate with drunk driving. Plenty of sober individuals have been guilty of speeding though, and distractions like the radio, a bug, an obstacle in the road or a spill in the car could also cause someone to swerve.

It is also true that the physical appearance of red watery eyes can indicate that a person has been drinking, but red, watery eyes are also common symptoms of fatigue, exposure to smoke, and allergies. Even chemical tests results are subject to error because of improper equipment maintenance, inaccuracies and human error. Not to mention, a test administered after an arrest may record a higher alcohol content than it would have at the time you were driving because it takes time for alcohol to enter the bloodstream.

Every case is different, but these are just a couple examples of the way your own Los Angeles DUI lawyer will strive to create reasonable doubt in the minds of jurors. This is an important goal because you are only convicted of the crime if there is no reasonable doubt in their minds. Unless they are convinced that you were guilty of DUI, you will probably keep your license and walk away without suffering other negative consequences like fines or time in prison.

Life sure gets a lot harder when you can't even drive to work in the morning. For example, even a marathon runner could spend about 4 hours getting to work if it is 26 miles away. In fact, even ten miles is further than most people want to walk, run or bike. Don't give up your driving privilege without a fight. Find a good Los Angeles DUI lawyer to stand at your side and make your case.
