Why Missouri DWI arrests are complicated and subject to flaws

Although arresting a drunk driver might seem like a quite straightforward task, the reality is that DWI arrests in Missouri are complicated affairs. Police officers are under pressure to ensure they complete all the procedures involved in DWI in the correct way.

How to have a responsible happy hour

Many bars and restaurants have a happy hour where patrons can stop by to enjoy discounted drinks and food. For many places, happy hour takes place around 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the weekdays, making it perfect for coworkers to stop by after a hard day at work. The discounted alcoholic drinks may tempt people to drink more than they ordinarily would, but it is vital to remain professional and safe. The police keep a lookout for drunk drivers any time of day, so even if you leave the restaurant at 6 p.m., you may still face a DWI charge.

Probable cause: When police only suspect a DWI

When you envision law enforcement officers arresting someone for DWI, you may imagine the police physically seeing a car swerving in the road. While that is the case for many of these incidents, an officer can indeed arrest someone without seeing the driver actually endanger anyone. One notorious example occurred when police tracked down a car that received a complaint from another driver, and the officers located 30 pounds of marijuana in the vehicle. 

Can police arrest drivers with a BAC lower than 0.08?

It was fairly recently that the United States adopted the blood alcohol content limit of 0.08 for determining if a driver operates a vehicle under the influence. However, some politicians are presently moving to make the limit even lower. While it may seem harsh, many countries have already adopted lower BAC limits for drivers. 

How one extra drink could land you in DWI hot water

Most people would agree that it is not safe to get behind the wheel after you have had too much to drink. Most people also agree that it is a good practice to have a designated driver if you are planning to spend a night out drinking at a bar or club. Both of these practices aim to protect everyone on the road from accidents due to drunk driving.

How to avoid a DWI during the holidays

Holidays are opportunities for kicking back and having a few drinks. However, when you end up having a bit too much to drink and then get behind the wheel, you run the risk of hurting yourself and others. Authorities in St. Louis often set up additional drunk-driver checkpoints during holiday times when drivers are leaving parties and more likely to exceed the Missouri state limit of having a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent.
