A Serious Crime
A DUI is a serious crime. Driving Under the Influence is a broad term for driving under the influence of any substance. The majority of people assume it is alcohol but it could be the influence of a prescription drug, illegal drug or a mixture of all three. Not only is it a danger to others on the road and in your path, you can cause serious damage to yourself. There are reports every day about people who have injured themselves beyond recognition because they were driving under the influence of something and crashed their vehicle. A DUI in Tucson is a serious crime and something that law enforcement does not take lightly.
A DUI in Tucson is not a one person crime. It is not one person simply making a bad decision but it is a crime that affects many people, innocent people who just happen to be on the road at the same time. When you are charged with a DUI, you will be punished and rightfully so. You have chosen to drive on the road when you are not in the best frame of mind. You are committing a crime and just because you have done it in the past without getting caught doesn’t make it right. By endangering the lives of others, you have shown a complete disregard for your fellow humans and this is something you should do. Think about if your family was the victim of a driver who was under the influence, wouldn’t you be upset and want justice for them? There are laws in place for a reason. They are to keep people safe from those who may have no regard for the law and for those who make bad choices. There is no reason that an innocent person should suffer because of the bad choices of others.
A DUI in Tucson is an offense that can be punished through a loss of license, fines, and other punishments. If you are a repeat offender, you may be order to attend a rehabilitation center where you can get some help for the problem. The inability to make sound decisions when you are under the influence of a substance is something that should be fixed. It is not an okay decision making process and you may have a serious problem that needs to be addressed, not just punished.
