Father faces drunk driving charges

Texting and driving can potentially lead to serious accidents on roadways in Tennessee and around the nation. In efforts to reduce accidents caused by distracted driving, many states have prohibited drivers from texting when they are behind the wheel. Police officers are increasingly diligent in attempting to curb this behavior and often stop those drivers spotted texting while driving. As a result of a recent stop, one driver must now evidently deal with drunk driving charges in addition to the claimed texting violation.

Sobriety checkpoints target more than drunk driving

DUI checkpoints are controversial, to say the least. In fact, several states have decided they are unconstitutional and do not allow police to use them as a means of finding and deterring drunk drivers. However, Tennessee law enforcement uses sobriety checkpoints and apparently finds them useful for more than DUI arrests. A recent report shows that drunk driving makes up only a small portion of the offenses charged at these checkpoints.

When a Tennessee resident is in a car accident, the main concerns are typically whether any people are injured or the extent to which the vehicles are damaged. However, if a person involved in the accident is suspected of drunk driving, other issues quickly surface. A recent incident near Nashville finds a driver facing charges after a traffic accident.

Drunk driving charges follow multiple accidents

Tennessee is among the strictest states for DUI penalties. Impaired driving in the state, whether it is due to drugged or drunk driving, is not tolerated, and the penalties can affect a driver's way of life for many years.

One woman is currently facing charges stemming from a series of accidents that occurred while she was allegedly under the influence of drugs.

Why you should fight a first-time drunk driving offense

Tennessee has some of the harshest penalties for intoxicated driving in the country. Even a first-time offense can bring serious consequences, yet many people facing this type of criminal charge believe that it is not worthwhile to fight it. If you have been charged with drunk driving, it is important to appropriately confront these charges, even if it is your first DUI charge.
