ramification of DUI before you drink and get in any car and drive.

accidents.Different states have harsher laws, punishments and restrictive
guidelines for DUI cases. Convictions in many states could mean myriad of
things like:
loss of driving privileges
imprisonment
rise in automobile insurance rates
installation of ignition interlock devices
lifetime conviction on your record
mandatory drug and alcohol educational classes
denial of naturalization
shame and humiliation
deportation from the United States
effects on future employment
denial of admission to other countries
effects on unrelated legal proceedings like child custody and divorce
All the 50 states of the United States and the District of Columbia have
per se laws which define what blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level is
considered a crime. Moreover, 45 of these states permit some DUI
offenders to drive their automobiles if their cars are equipped with
ignition interlocks, 30 states impound vehicles of multiple offenders and
45 states and Washington D.C. prohibit drivers, passengers or both to
have an open container of alcohol in the compartment of their vehicle.If
ever you are arrested for any DUI-related crimes, it is important for you
to get immediate assistance from drunk-driving criminal defense
attorneys. Be sure to pick one who has several years experience in
defending similar cases. Hire a reputable lawyer who can defend you and
who can erase all DUI-related criminal records.Precaution:Because of the
severity of the punishment, it is best that you have a driver with you if
you want to have a party, to drink and to enjoy the night. Always
remember that the punishment you experience and the injuries you inflict
on people is not worth the one extra drink you have. To avoid possible
accidents and infractions to occur, it is best to stay at home at night,
to drink at home and to avoid driving while you are intoxicated. Always
remember that the life you save could be your own or your loved ones.
