Nearly 12 Percent of All Attendees Leaving Sporting Events Ready To Get a DWI/DUI

Drivers on the streets of Northern Virginia, and throughout all of Virginia, are more than 10 percent more likely to leave a sporting event drunk driving enough to qualify for their own DWI/DUI ticket. That's quite a prize for rooting for your favorite team for a few hours. But when it happens, knowing your rights and consulting with a DWI/DUI attorney is your best option.

A study from the University of Minnesota found that nearly one in every 12 fans leaves an event intoxicated, to then get behind the wheel of a vehicle. In fact, it found fans who "tailgated" prior to the start of the game were 14 times more likely to be drunk enough for a DWI/DUI ticket.

While everyone is entitled to enjoy the event, doing so responsibly is the key. Consult with any DWI/DUI lawyer and you are likely to hear stories about repeat offenders who lose their driver's license for life. That too is a stiff penalty for enjoy the game too much.

The Virginia DWI/DUI law has two parts, the statutes and the case law. Statutes are laws that have been passed and enacted by the Virginia General Assembly and signed into law by the Governor. On the other hand, DWI/DUI case law is the culmination of legal opinions written by the courts that are charged with interpreting the statutes. Virginia DWI/DUI case laws have either precedential or persuasive authority and can be very important DWI/DUI defense tools.
