Even One DUI Can Change Your Future

If you have ever tried to downplay the seriousness of a DUI, think again. Even one conviction for DUI can affect the stability of your license. This is why designated drivers are so important. Laws in recent years reflect the efforts of many concerned citizens who have lost loved ones in substance-related crashes. Drivers of all ages and backgrounds may be unaware of the effects of alcohol and its interaction with other drugs. Operating a vehicle under the influence repeatedly can cause multiple charges to accumulate on your record and affect more than your ability to drive. It impacts your freedom in many ways.
