Police step up DUI enforcement

Various Nebraska police agencies have noted that they are planning a strong crackdown on drunk driving as part of several initiatives that have seen widespread citations and warnings. Around St. Patrick's Day, Papillion police distributed 35 citations, and 10 days later, La Vista police announced three DUI arrests within one four-hour period. Law enforcement spokespeople have commented in media interviews and social media posts that they view drunk driving as a major danger on the roads.

The consequences of underage drinking and driving accusations

In the state of Nebraska, the legal limit for drinking and driving is a blood alcohol content of .08 percent. However, this law only applies to those who are age 21 or older. For drivers who are under 21, any amount of alcohol in their system could result in serious legal consequences.

Drunk driving charges around the world

Drunk driving is illegal everywhere in the United States, but Nebraska as well as all other states each have their own specific laws. The laws outside of the U.S. vary, but all are based on the alcohol content in a driver's blood. Penalties upon conviction can depend on how far over the legal limit the driver was, and whether it was a first or a repeat offense.

Harsh financial penalties associated with DUIs

People who are accused of drunk driving face significant pressure. There are many different consequences and legal penalties associated with a DUI, whether you are accused of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. You could face jail time. You will lose your license and could have ignition interlock installed in your vehicle. And carrying criminal history for many years after the charge could hamper your ability to find a new place to live or to get a job.
