Over the course of history — or at least the part of history that involves motor vehicles — a countless number of people have decided to get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle while they were intoxicated on either drugs or alcohol. Such ubiquity doesn’t make this behavior okay or even acceptable, but it is an acknowledgement that it happens all the time. When drunk driving episodes happen, the person accused of the offense needs to have legal representation on his or her side.
