Alcohol can play a major role in crimes that technically aren’t considered “alcohol-related”. It can affect the brain in a way that impairs judgment. There are also crimes that are directly related to alcohol. This blog is going to focus on a few of those as well as why you might need an alcohol violations attorney in Boca Raton.
A DUI (Driving Under the Influence) and a DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) are both very serious alcohol-related crimes. It goes on your driving record and raises your insurance premiums. It also results in a suspended license, and in some cases it can even result in jail time. Driving under the influence can not only affect you but others as well. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that roughly 40% of all U.S. traffic deaths are alcohol-related.
Have you ever had one too many to drink so instead of getting in your car, you decided to walk home? Well, even though you made a good decision in not driving, you might not be in the clear. If you are showing overly visible signs of intoxication or causing problems due to your intoxication, you can be charged with public intoxication. Public intoxication laws exist to prevent people from disturbing others in public. Also to remove people who appear to be unable to stop themselves from hurting themselves or others.
