The words “iconic” and “cool” are definitely overused by a lot of us, but the Mustang has every right to own those adjectives. Driving or riding in a Mustang has been cool since day one. Now the car is iconic, legendary, inspiring all kinds of feelings from owners and collectors.
What does this have to do with DUI, you ask? Well, everything and nothing. For the purposes of discussion we could say that anyone who cherishes a vehicle like a Mustang would never drive one in an impaired state, because the vehicle means so much to them. But that point is not my point. People love or value their vehicles and their passengers, and still drive impaired. And whether that impairment goes on to cause injury to people or to vehicles, the driver carries the responsibility, whatever his or her reason was for drinking or using drugs before getting behind the wheel.
The definition of what’s cool changes almost daily. The Ford Mustang is now 50 years old, and as cool as ever. Some people, unfortunately, still seem to believe that driving while impaired is cool, or at least, it is something that’s okay to do. And the laws, and myself as a DUI attorney, are here to tell those people: it isn’t. Not ever.
You don’t have to own a legendary car to want to drive safely and protect your passengers as well. The vehicle you’re driving won’t affect the potential charges or penalties if you are stopped for a DUI.
