Traffic Offenses that Coincide with DUI Charges
When a person is arrested for DUI, sometimes they are pulled over for violating a traffic law, and then the officer began the DUI investigation once they were stopped. Some of the most common reasons a driver is pulled over and subsequently charged with DUI include:
- Failure to maintain lane
- Following too closely
- Failure to obey a traffic control device
- Fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer
- Reckless driving
- Texting while driving
After the arrest, people find themselves charged with both DUI and a traffic violation. In some circumstances, a successful defense of the initial stop can lead to a dismissal of the DUI charge. Our Walker County DUI Lawyers are skilled in defending both the DUI charge and the traffic charge.
Hiring a Walker County GA DUI Lawyer
We understand some people want to defend their DUI case on their own because they think they will save money that way. However, when you represent yourself, you will be held to the same standards as a lawyer. That means that you will be responsible for knowing the rules of court, the rules of evidence, the filing deadlines, and the laws relating to your case. Judges do not have mercy, nor do they give special advice to those that choose to represent themself. While it may seem that you save money, it can cost you thousands more in the long run. Without hiring representation, you could end up being convicted of DUI. This can cause you to lose your professional license, make it difficult to obtain employment, make insurance premiums go up, and have other consequences. A DUI conviction comes with multiple consequences that extend beyond court fines and probation.
