We all know that alcohol and driving don’t mix. Even one drink can impair a person and make them more likely to get into a car accident. But many people underestimate the amount of alcohol in their body and try to prove to others that they can handle it.
Unfortunately, this often leads to serious accidents. Alcohol consumption decreases judgment and slows down reaction times, both which can lead to fatal mistakes when driving.
The law is harsh on those who drink and drive. While the legal limit across the country is a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08, you could still face criminal charges of driving while visibly impaired if you are under that limit and in no condition to drive.
Drinking and driving is a serious crime that results in severe penalties. A DUI charge is not only costly, but it robs you of your freedoms. You could face jail time and lose your license. You could also lose your job and see your relationships become affected by your decision to drink and drive.
We all make mistakes. If you made the mistake of drinking and driving, see how the Livonia drunk driving lawyers at the Law Offices of Bradley J. Friedman can help you with your case.
There are no hard and fast rules that can determine how many alcoholic drinks you can have before you reach the legal limit of 0.08. Each person is different, and you may become visibly impaired before you reach that point. You could have only one drink and become too drunk to drive.
Not all drinks are created equal. Cocktails tend to contain more alcohol than beer or wine, so it’s hard to say exactly how many drinks you can safely have. Your best bet is to not have any alcohol at all if you plan to drive.
There are many factors that can affect one’s BAC. In addition, two people with the same BAC may have varying levels of impairment. Your BAC is affected by the following:

Great attorney! Exceeded my hopes and expectations. Comfortable to communicate with. Very pleased with the end resolution of my case!
Out of all the attorneys I called, the only one that took the time out to see me for a consultation and laid out all my options and helped me understand my situation better. Always there when I had questions. So grateful for Mr. Friedman!
After months of uncertainty and many stressful nights, worrying about my future and how to prove myself innocent,I went to speak with Bradley Friedman. I had two attorney's prior to hiring Bradley, and they got me NOWHERE. TWO WEEKS AFTER HIRING MR FRIEDMAN, MY CRIMINAL CASE WAS DISMISSED!! he did in one hearing what two CLOWNS couldn't get done in three months!! Hopefully I never need a criminal attorney again,…
