					DUI Punishment

DUI punishment is painful. DUI punishment varies from State to State. Be sure and
check with your lawyer for specifics related to your State. Here are some typical DUI
punishments and what you can do to help avoid DUI punishment.

If you lost your license, how would your life be affected? It would impact most people
quite substantially. They drive to work, take kids to school, shop, run errands, and go on
trips. If you get a DUI, you will lose your license for 6 months or more in most states.
You may be able to get a restricted license to get back and forth to work, depending on
your state.

You also will likely face some mandatory jail time. It's usually about two days. You may
be able to get assigned to a work crew in order to avoid being in an actual cell.

Another DUI punishment is probation. In most States, you can figure on about 3 to 5
years. During this time, forget about drinking and driving at all. If you get caught, you'll
receive a severe DUI punishment.

Due to the punitive nature of these DUI punishments, you really need to take steps to
avoid getting a DUI altogether. Or, if you already have a first DUI, take steps never to get
another one. Here is one key tool to help.

Purchase A Breathalyzer

A breathalyzer is a small digital device that measures the alcohol in your system. You
blow into the device and it measures your blood alcohol content. You can find a good
breathalyzer online for around $100. You should buy one for all of your cars, and keep
them there. The next time you're out and getting ready to drive home, test yourself. If
you're over the limit, relax and have some water until you are well under the legal limit.
This will help you avoid any DUI punishment.

Would you know what to do if you got pulled over?

A businessman took some clients wine tasting, hoping to land a big account. While wine
tasting, he spit the wine out. He got pulled over. The cop smelled booze, arrested him,
and handcuffed him in front of his clients. When they tested him later, he blew.01 - almost
stone sober! The guy lost the account and had to fight the DUI.

Happens all of the time. If you don’t take steps to protect yourself, you’re toast.
