Types Of Driving Impairment

We recently had a St. Louis area client who didn’t understand why she was arrested on suspicion of DWI when she had only one glass of wine. She didn’t realize that by mixing a drink with her legal painkillers, she could severely impair her ability to operate a motor vehicle and leave herself open to DWI prosecution.

DWI Arrests Can Come From More Than Just Alcohol

Just because your breath test results are under the .08 legal limit doesn’t mean that you are immune from a DWI arrest. Driving while on prescription medicine like painkillers, particularly when mixed with alcohol, can be enough to be arrested and convicted of a crime.

Painkillers, Narcotics, Prescription Medication And More

More and more police departments throughout Missouri employ drug recognition experts to assess drivers who demonstrate visual or cognitive impairment, but whose blood alcohol levels are either normal or below the limit. They can take blood or urine tests to get a broader picture of what medications, legal or otherwise, you may have taken.

Challenging All Forms Of Impairment Cases

If you are charged with DWI, you need a lawyer who understands how to attack these cases aggressively and has a clear understanding of the procedures that police are expected to follow.
