How a DUI arrest can haunt you for life
By Fri 1:32 PM On Sept. 3, 2013, San Francisco opened a seismically safe eastern span of the Bay Bridge. Not two hours later, the California Highway Patrol made its first DUI arrest on the bridge.
Whether it’s called driving under the influence (DUI), operating while intoxicated (OWI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), drunk driving is a nationwide problem of seismic magnitude. A majority of states use .08 percent as the legal level of intoxication for adults.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an estimated 10,228 people died in drunk driving crashes in 2011, accounting for 31 percent of all traffic deaths that year.
Driving under the influence (DUI)
When operating a motor vehicle, boat or watercraft in Virginia, you are legally considered driving or operating under the influence (DUI) if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.08 percent or higher. You may be considered under the influence with a lower BAC if your ability to operate a motor vehicle, boat or water craft is impaired. If your driving is affected because you are under the influence of any drug, you may face the same penalties as driving under the influence of alcohol.
If you are involved in a motor vehicle crash and a law enforcement officer has probable cause, you can be arrested for DUI within three hours of the crash without a warrant and at any location.
New Change to Virginia’s Gun Law will take effect on July of 2012
New change to our current Virginia gun law will take effect on July 1st, 2012. As of right now, in the State of Virginia, an individual with a concealed gun permit may purchase multiple handguns in a period of one month, while a non-licensed individual may only buy one handgun during the same period of time. The new change in the gun law, starting on July 1st, 2012, will allow non-licensed individuals to purchase multiple handguns in a one month period of time. This is a major mile stone in favor of our constitution’s second amendment rights in Virginia.

Secretary Napolitano Announces Deferred Action Process for Young People Who Are Low Enforcement Priorities
WASHINGTON— Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano today announced that effective immediately, certain young people who were brought to the United States as young children, do not present a risk to national security or public safety, and meet several key criteria will be considered for relief from removal from the country or from entering into removal proceedings. Those who demonstrate that they meet the criteria will be eligible to receive deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and will be eligible to apply for work authorization.
“Our nation’s immigration laws must be enforced in a firm and sensible manner,” said Secretary Napolitano. “But they are not…
Starting in July, Virginia DUI means ignition interlock
On behalf of A. Mark Nicewicz, Esq posted in Drunk Driving on Tuesday, April 10, 2012
Interlock devices for DUI offenses have been a hot topic recently in Virginia and throughout the country. In fact, we previously discussed the pros and cons of new Virginia legislation that will require ignition interlock devices for first-time DUI offenders.
The new law, which was passed quickly by legislators, will go into effect in July and is expected to quadruple the number of Virginia residents required to install ignition interlock devices in their vehicles. That means about 18,000 people statewide will have to pay $480 for the installation of the device, which will stay in people’s cars for six…
