Women drivers, alcohol and DUIs

Many people in Minneapolis are aware that drinking and driving are a dangerous combination. That knowledge is not preventing some of them from receiving DUI charges. According to the Startribune.com, for every seven drivers on the road, one of them has a DUI on their record. Many of those drivers are women. The number of DUI-related arrests for women has increased throughout the years, while the number of male-related offenders has declined. Any woman who decides to drink socially and drive should learn how DUIs can affect her future.

No system is perfect, and whether you are innocent or guilty, you should never blindly trust law enforcement officers without an attorney representing your side.
