Alcohol monitoring techniques in Missouri

If a driver is convicted of driving under the influence, he or she may be required to wear a SCRAM bracelet. This acronym stands for Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring, and it is considered easier than in-person alcohol testing. It is generally attached to an individual's ankle and will monitor a person's sweat for the presence of alcohol.

Drunk driving charges may be defended

As Missouri residents know, drunk driving is a serious charge that may result in penalties, fines and possibly impact on an individual's right to drive a vehicle. It can also in some cases impose a barrier on obtaining future employment. While state laws vary, it is possible to defend against a drunk driving charge in a variety of ways.

What is implied consent?

If a driver is pulled over in Missouri, they may need to submit to tests to determine if they are under the influence of alcohol. While a driver has the right to refuse to submit to the tests, there may be automatic consequences for doing so. This is because most states have implied consent laws, which means that drivers have already given their permission to be tested.
