It seems that not a month goes by without some announcement by a major manufacturer that a specific product is being recalled. The reason could be a defect in a component. Sometimes it is because certain interactions with the product can potentially cause harm to the people using it. Recalls are all about safety, whether the product is a child’s toy, a worker’s tool, or a motor vehicle.
In my line of work as a DUI defense attorney, naturally I pay attention to auto manufacturers’ recalls as much as anyone. But my focus is more on the driver than on the vehicle. A “safe” vehicle means nothing if the driver is at risk of causing harm. If law enforcement has reason to believe that a driver may be impaired by drugs or alcohol, that person threatens the safety of everyone on the road.
DUI laws exist to help protect people and property from unsafe acts by impaired drivers. It’s my job to see that clients facing DUI charges receive proper legal protection, and that their rights are established and asserted.
A safe vehicle is important, but I am concerned about you. It’s important to keep in mind that drug and alcohol DUI charges can carry serious consequences. There can be heavy penalties in terms of fines, incarceration, and other legal limitations to an offender’s daily life.
