Going out for a drink or two after a long workday is pretty common. Most people will argue that there is nothing wrong with grabbing a beer or two with your coworkers, especially at the end of a long shift. The trouble in these social drinking scenarios according to a survey is how one drink can easily lead to several more, and before a person knows it, they are above the legal drinking limit, which can obviously lead to a serious DUI arrest when a person gets into a traffic incident.
Drinking under the influence or a DUI law can vary from one state to another. In general, however, a DUI means the driver of the vehicle is being charged with a serious offense for endangering themselves and others. A DUI charge can apply to the use of alcohol as well as drugs (prescribed or recreational) that have effectively impaired a person’s capacity to operate a moving vehicle.
