Tips To Avoid A DUI Arrest

First tip to avoid a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) arrest? Don’t drive if you are high or if you are drunk.


But, in the present day, statistics show that it is truly hard to avoid instances of driving under the influence, especially when a lot of people feel that drinking does not affect their ability to drive.


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or NHTSA and most state statutes, say that drivers are impaired at 0.08 BAC or blood alcohol concentration. Even with rules and regulations as such have been created, it remains true that people above that level can still be able to drive without causing an accident, and people below that level can already be intoxicated enough to cause harm.


Thus, it would be helpful to have a few tips to avoid a DUI arrest.


First, the car registration should be current. Most people who get stopped by officers and are accused of DUI saw that the registration tag is expired.


Next, obey the traffic laws at all times. The only reason people get stopped by police officer is they violate the traffic laws. Don’t drive above or below the limit. Keep the u-turns in areas you will be traversing in mind. Always signal – whether making turns or changing lanes. Obedient drivers very, very rarely get stopped.



Be certain that the car itself is not going against any legal codes, and is operating well. Check your rear turn signal, front plate and brake lights. Once an officer can state any problem about your car, even just a simple defect, the stop would be declared constitutional by the court. On the other hand, a stop by a police officer can be considered unconstitutional when he has no reason to stop your vehicle, but he did.


Also, be mindful of state laws. Some do not even require drivers caught to take coordination tests. Once a police officer asks you to undergo these tests, you can refuse. Without any proof of DUI, it will be more difficult for a police officer to make a statement in court about the incident. It is also advisable to refuse to answer questions of the police officer. The law gives us the right against self-incrimination, or the right to remain quiet and not answer any question until we find a lawyer to represent us.


And if you fail to avoid a DUI arrest, well, you can get the case dismissed or the charges dropped. How? Contact an expert, like

Parents with Disabled Children

It is already a problem that disabled persons are taking care of themselves. The other issue is that some parents are worried that their children will share the same fate because the parents are already aged.


Joanne Collins worries about dying.


She thinks about it in the afternoon as she waits for her daughter to get off the bus.


She wonders who will cook dinner for Maureen and if they will let her watch Pokemon and Power Rangers on TV. She prays they will care enough to help Maureen take a bath each night and tuck her into bed.


Mrs. Collins and her husband have done all those things for their daughter since she was a little girl.


Maureen is now 52 years old.


“To us, she’s still a child,” Mrs. Collins, 76, says of her daughter, who is mentally retarded and has severe epileptic seizures. “I worry constantly. When something happens to us, what will happen to Maureen? This is just tearing me apart.”


In Ohio, the Collinses and thousands of aging parents like them have reason to be afraid.

These parents do not have it easy. They need help and they need someone to counsel them. The thought of death always lingering on your mind and the fear of what is to be can be very disturbing. It is quite a burden trying to fend for yourself and your adult child as well.


As a result, said the executive director of Sacramento’s Resources for Independent Living, Frances Gracechild: “We have this phenomenon of aging parents with increasing need for support themselves, and they’re still taking care of their grown developmentally disabled children.


“It’s quite a burden to meet when you’re facing your 70s.”


As they age, the parents of the adult developmentally disabled may need legal counseling to put together a special-needs trust to care for their offspring, and they may need advice on residential options, said Fran Smith, a Yolo County advocate for the developmentally disabled. Two of her children had cerebral palsy.


“I was always worried about what my kids would do when I die, but they both predeceased me,” she said. “Parents need a coach. They need somebody to help them. Thinking about what will happen to your grown child after you’re gone is painful.

If there are siblings with no disabilities then the mantle should be passed to them. The burden an worry is too much for the parents. They need to make all the necessary plans so as provide good quality care for their siblings.


“A growing generation of parents is now facing old age and the prospect that their children with disabilities will outlive them. As of 2006, more than 716,00 adults with developmental disabilities were living with caregivers over the age of 60 in the United States.”


You may need to take the initiative to talk to your parents about a plan for your sibling’s future. Your parents have cared for them and have tried to provide for the best quality of life that they could. As your parents are advancing in age, you can give them reassurance by getting involved in planning for your sibling with special needs.
