When DUIs are discussed in the media or even in personal conversation, they are frequently misunderstood in one crucial way. Specifically, they are portrayed as far less common than they actually are. In reality, DUIs are quite common. In 2017, for instance, over 650,000 people were arrested for DUIs in the US alone, and numbers have only grown since.
Quite simply, the United States has a drinking culture as well as a driving culture, and this unfortunately leads to blurred lines and people making the regrettable mistake to get behind the wheel while drunk (whether they realize they’re drunk at the time or not). There are any number of scenarios in which an error in judgement, a miscalculation, or impulsive overconfidence can lead to someone driving while drunk. Maybe you had one too many at the Christmas party and thought you could make it home alright. Maybe you didn’t want to leave your car at the bar parking lot, or flake out on giving someone a ride, and figured you would be fine on the short drive home. Maybe you lost count of the wine refills at dinner. Whatever the scenario, it is unfortunately common for people to slip up and get behind the wheel while over the legal blood alcohol limit.
