Woman’s Unique Excuse Dismisses DUI

Coming up with excuses to beat a DUI charge is not something unheard of. People consider it all the time. What can I do to get out of this? One woman in New York had one of the most inventive excuses given to date and, the catch is, it was true. A charge of drunk driving was dismissed against a woman in New York after doctors testified that her body was a brewery. Doctors say that the woman suffers with “auto-brewery syndrome,” a condition that causes the body to metabolize alcohol differently than other people. After being pulled over in 2014, the...

Illinois Introduces New DUI Measures

One of the first concerns that people have after being arrested for driving under the influence is losing their driving privileges. In Illinois, first time offenders will now be eligible for limited privileges within their 30-day suspension provided they register to have a breathalyzer installed in their vehicles. As soon as an offender has the device installed in their vehicle, they are given permission to drive at certain times. According to attorneys, this is a better way to regulate drinking and driving without making it impossible for those who rely on their transportation to take care of themselves and their families.

GA Judge Modifies DUI Laws

A Georgia administrative judge made a ruling on New Year’s Eve that surprised quite a few people. Alcohol on the breath, hitting a curb and water eyes are not enough to say that a driver is impaired. It is also not enough to yank their driver’s license. The state of Georgia made the news last spring when a Supreme Court ruling said that when drivers are too drunk to give consent to any field sobriety testing, the evidence used against them may be tossed out. The new ruling stands by what the Supreme Court has said. According to the official ruling, a...
