The one thing you never want to have happen when you're driving your car is to look back and see police flashers directly behind you. Especially when you've been working late and stopped off at the local watering hole for a couple of beers to take the edge off. Unfortunately, that is all it takes anymore to get arrested for DUI - just a couple of beers.
The legal limit for alcohol has been lowered to the point that just that little amount will send you to jail - do not pass go, and definitely do not collect $200. It is more like pay $20,000 before it's all over if you go from overnight jail stay to a conviction for DUI. It could cost you your job, your home, your marriage, your driving privileges - just about everything and then some. The financial cost isn't even the worst that can happen, it is horrible how much a DUII conviction can change your life.
