Driving Under the Influence of Drugs, Medication and Hazardous Substances

People charged with driving under the influence of prescription medications, drugs and hazardous substances are often caught by surprise. In some cases, people are arrested even though they have a valid prescription for a medication. Some drivers are charged with driving under the influence of illegal drugs, even though they have not used drugs that same day, or for several days in some instances. Charges based on hazardous substances can also be surprising, as some drivers have been exposed to a hazardous substance as a function of their job.

When people think of drunk driving, they typically think of the .08 legal limit, but drivers may be convicted of driving under the influence if they are unlawfully impaired. Impairment includes driving, operating or controlling a motor vehicle while "under the influence" of alcohol, drugs or a hazardous substance, based on physical evidence and observations of the arresting officer.

Unfortunately, the arresting officer may be mistaken and the physical evidence may be misleading. The good news is that a knowledgeable and skilled defense attorney can raise numerous defenses on your behalf to make a positive difference in your case.
