This book is a practical manual of driving under the influence. What DUI means, how to avoid doing it, how to avoid getting caught if you do it, how to avoid a conviction if you do get caught. Told by one of the nation’s leading DUI specialists, with over thirty years of legal experience, this is a book with solid practical advice on every page.
Tom Hudson uses clear explanations and easy to understand charts and graphs to explain many of the “unspeakable truths” about drunk driving, including:
How the government has overstated the problem of drinking and driving
The best ways to drive safely after drinking
The best ways to avoid arrest for drinking and driving
Why you should never take the Field Sobriety Tests
Why it used to be better to refuse a breath test, but it is now often wiser to blow
How to legally minimize your breath alcohol if they test your breath
How marijuana affects driving
No one should drive after they have had too much to drink, but how much is too much? This is an ideal book for anyone who ever takes a drink of alcohol and gets behind the wheel.
