How to behave at a DWI checkpoint

Missouri has many laws on the books to protect citizens from drunk driving. That is why Missouri is an implied consent state, which means if a person is arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, then she or he has to submit to a breathalyzer test or risk having a license revoked for 12 months.

What should you do if you are too drunk to drive?

Getting arrested for a DWI is a serious offense. Police are always on the lookout for people who may be driving impaired, especially during major events. According to the FBI, law enforcement arrested over 1.1 million people for driving under the influence in 2014, and no one wants to be part of that statistic.

Having a BAC under 0.08 may not be enough to avoid trouble

Ask Missouri residents what BAC level can lead to a DWI charge or other issues such as driver's license suspension, and the answer will probably be at least 0.08. That is for a good reason. After all, 0.08 is the "magic" number in many situations -- but not all.

Can an officer demand that you take a breath test?

In Missouri, police officers take several approaches to determine whether someone may be violating the state's DWI laws. For example, there are field sobriety tests such as one-leg stands, but the reliability of these tests is questionable. Even figures from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicate that the tests are wrong 17 percent to 35 percent of the time.

How quickly can a woman can get drunk on light beer?

If you are a woman who enjoys alcohol, you may already know that, as a general rule, your male counterparts can get away with drinking more and still be more sober than you are. It is unfair and is a reality of body weight and possibly other factors such as stomach enzymes.
