There are a variety of situations where a police officer may stop and pull over a driver. In some of these instances, these drivers may also be arrested. If someone is determined to be driving under the influence, they will be arrested. This is also the case with many vehicle accidents, particularly when someone is injured or dies as a result. If any of these situations occur, it is important to contact an attorney.
The Prevalence of Drunk Driving
On a daily basis, it has been determined that approximately 300,000 people drive while under the influence. Less than 4,000 of these individually are arrested, however. Prior to their arrest, the average drunk driver will have driven while under the influence about 80 times.
