Woman arrested after allegedly driving while intoxicated

When you drive with children in your vehicle, you need to be sober and attentive. They're important, and they add a layer of difficulty if you get stopped for violating the law. If you're not careful, you can be accused of endangering your children as well as accused of a DUI. That's what's happening in this case out of Virginia.

Is drugged driving more common than drunk driving?

It's wise to look at traffic accidents to determine their causes, but doing so can create some connections to changes in laws that you may not have thought would impact drivers. For example, did you know that over the course of two years, the number of drugged driving deaths rose while the number of drunk driving deaths actually fell?

Here's how to reduce your risk of driving drunk

You're planning to go out for the night and have drinks with your friends. You know that you're going to have to drive at some point, so you plan to stop drinking early on and to allow your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) to drop to a safe level. How can you make sure that you're safe to drive?

Drinking and driving causes crashes and takes lives

Drunkenly driving your vehicle puts your life, the lives of your passengers and the lives of others on the roadways at risk. Even if you feel normal when you get behind the wheel, your blood alcohol concentration could risk and cause you to drive poorly. It's very important to take the time to test your BAC before you drive or to chose an alternative way home if you plan to drink.

How can you tell if your blood alcohol concentration is over .08?

As someone who loves to go out and have a good time but also wants to be responsible, it's important to understand how alcohol affects the body. If you are planning to drive home, you need to know that you're going to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.07 or lower to prevent being stopped and charged with a DUI.

He or she takes the risk of fleeing without considering the damage it could cause. Delaying treatment to someone injured in a crash could be the difference between life and death.

Implied consent applies to highways, Virginia Supreme Court rules

Imagine falling asleep in your parked car in a parking lot. You had too much to drink, so instead of driving, you decided to sleep it off in your vehicle where you could be safe and also not put others at risk. Then, a police officer comes upon you, and he attempts to give you a breath test. Is there any reason you should give a sample to the officer?
