A DUI is a Horrible Career Move
When you order a drink at the bar, or a shot with your friends, you could be putting your career at risk. You don't think about your career when you're
out drinking, even if you're out with your co-workers. You only think about that buzz, or the taste of whatever drink you prefer. But getting a DUI can
affect your career; as in it can end it.
To get a DUI you do not have to swerve in-between lanes or smash your car up. All that needs to happen is you being pulled over by a cop while
under the influence of alcohol. Anything that breaks the law can get you pulled over, so that means an out of date sticker of inspection, cracked
window, or a broken taillight can cause you to be pulled over by an officer of the law. If the policeman suspects you of driving under the influence or
thinks you have been drinking at all you will receive a breathalyzer test. This will let the officer know if you have been drinking. Issuing a breathalyzer
test then determines the amount of alcohol in your blood; it's the fastest way to determine this. However, you can refuse to take a breathalyzer test, but
more than likely, you will be arrested on the spot and will have you tested at the station in failure to comply with it. Simply refusing to take the test will
not save you from punishment if you have been drinking and then driving.
If you are arrested for a DUI, you will go to jail. This is the start of where your career will be affected by those poor choices you have made. After being
put into a drunk tank, the next morning you will go before a judge. If by chance you have work the next day, you will need to call and let them know you
will not be there. Also, keep in mind that judges usually do not work over the weekends, so you might have to wait until the following Monday. This
would be the case if this happened over the weekend, which is the time when this crime happens the most.
If by chance, you are lucky, the judge will rule that there is a lack of evidence to support that you were DUI, then you wil
