Many people think that those who are arrested for DUI know full well that they are drunk when they get behind the wheel and just choose to ignore the rights of others as well as their own safety. While it is true that some drivers are heavily intoxicated, the majority of DUIs occur with drivers who are at or near the .08 percent blood alcohol limit. What this means is that one or two drinks, in some cases, can be enough to convict you of DUI, and you may not even realize that you are over the limit when you are pulled over.
In fact, drivers at or close to the BAC limit are actually more likely to cooperate with police, believing that they are “safe,” than those who realize they are intoxicated. This means that you could easily place yourself in a position in which your own good intentions may contribute to convicting you of driving under the influence.
