DWI arrest: Things that can go wrong, punishments

Here is one thing you should always remember: if you never drink and drive, there is a very good chance you will never be arrested for driving under the influence.

But did you know there are times when a person is falsely arrested for this crime? Did you know that police can and do make mistakes from time to time? Here is an excerpt from our website that will open your eyes: "We know the many factors that can go wrong with a drunk driving arrest — weather and road conditions; a pre-existing medical condition or vehicle malfunction can produce erratic driving, and convince police that they have "probable cause" to arrest you."

Nobody wants to be arrested for driving under the influence. This holds true among those who were actually drunk, as well as those who were dead sober at the time they got pulled over. However, if you are unable to prove that you were not legally drunk, you could be hit with a serious punishment. In the state of Colorado, the following DWI punishments are common: license suspension, jail time, large fines and the mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device.

There are many things that can go wrong during a DWI arrest. In some cases, people are pulled over and arrested for driving under the influence, despite the fact that they were sober at the time.

Knowing your rights, as well as common mistakes and punishments, may help a defendant create a better defense. Our webpage entitled "Tough DUI Defense Attorneys In Colorado Springs" shares a lot of useful information.
