One of the most common crimes committed in the United States is driving under the influence (DUI). Unfortunately, one-third of all vehicle accidents in the United States are caused by drunk drivers with Blood Alcohol Counts of .08 or higher. Drinking while operating a vehicle is a very dangerous decision that can lead to severe legal punishment, including the loss of a driver’s license and jail time.
