Supreme Court decision changes an aspect of DUI testing

The United States Supreme Court recently issued a ruling on cases that have to do with drunk driving. The cases challenged the legality of blood tests to check the blood alcohol concentration level of drivers who are accused of drunk driving. The cases noted that BAC tests are intrusive and are in violation of a person's right to not have to deal with unreasonable searches and seizures.

Points to remember about DUI cases

Drunk driving cases are fairly common, but that doesn't mean that every point about these cases is common knowledge. There are some points about a drunk driving case that you might not know, especially if you are facing your first drunk driving charge. Understanding these points might help you to understand what is going on a bit better.

Learn your options to fight against a felony DUI charge

As we discussed last week, felony drunk driving convictions can have an impact on your ability to find a job. That isn't the only thing that these convictions can impact. When you are charged with a felony DUI, it means that you have already been convicted of a DUI within the past decade. If you are facing a felony DUI charge, you must fight against that charge.

Felony DUI convictions can impact your employability

Many people rely on their ability to drive to places they need to go. This can include driving to and from work. Some people even rely on their ability to drive to be able to work. These include truckers, taxi drivers, bus drivers and many other professions. For these workers, blemishes on their driving records can be devastating. Convictions for a felony DUI or any other drunk driving charge can be career ending.

What are the different tests used to determine alcohol levels?

A person who is stopped for the suspicion of drunk driving will have to undergo a form of testing to determine how much alcohol is in his or her blood. Many people think of breath tests when they are thinking about determining the blood alcohol concentration of a person. That isn't the only form of testing that law enforcement officers can use when they need to learn a person's BAC.
