Traffic Violations

Wouldn't you know it, the name "Lohan" is in the headlines again. But this time, it isn't because of the more recognizable Lindsay Lohan -- it's her mom, Dina Lohan. She was arrested in New York recently after the police pulled her over on speeding allegations. Apparently she was travelling 77 miles per hour in a 55 MPH zone. Once they pulled Dina over, the police believed she may have been intoxicated.

They gave her a blood alcohol test, which came back with a 0.20 result -- two-and-a-half times the legal limit. She was arrested on DUI charges. Lohan was quickly released without bail, but she had to forfeit her driver's license. 

For anyone who is accused of a drunk driving violation, you need to consult a criminal defense attorney immediately. However, there is one surefire way to prevent DUI charges: don't drink and drive in the first place. Obviously, there can be some extenuating circumstances some time, but no one should drive while they are drunk.

With that said, people who are accused of driving under the influence should not immediately be judged for their alleged actions. People should not assume that a DUI suspect is guilty. They are still entitled to their rights, and they are innocent until proven guilty. There could be exceptional aspects to the case that make the incident more complicated than it may appear. The consequences of a DUI charge are far too great to simply assume that someone is guilty of this crime.
