In Kentucky, driving under the influence can have serious consequences.
When a serious offense is committed on the road, it can result in license suspension or revocation, fines and even a jail sentence. Drunk driving is just one of these types of charges one can face on the roadways of Kentucky and across the country. Incidents resulting in a collision of some kind or incidents where lives are endangered, especially children, can bring more serious charges to those involved.
It has been said that “The first rule when you find yourself in a hole is, ‘stop digging.’” Of course, many people panic when they are involved in a car accident or when they are being investigated by police at a traffic stop. Naturally, the very first instinct might be to run away from the scene or to resist arrest or even to become combative with police officers. Giving into these impulses, however, only makes things far worse for defendants.
