You don’t have to be driving to get a DUI

Posted on August 22nd, 2011 No Comments

Many would be surprised to discover that you can be charged with drunk driving… even if you’re not driving. People all over the country have been arrested after police have found them intoxicated in their car. DUI extends to physically being “in or about the vehicle.”

Reports of a woman being arrested after she parked outside a North Carolina fast-food restaurant with her engine on, a New Jersey man charged with DUI after passing out in the back of his parked truck, and a Canadian man arrested for pushing his broken-down vehicle while drunk are all examples of this little-known drunk driving condition. Being inside of a vehicle while intoxicated, even though the vehicle may not be in motion, can result in a DUI conviction.

If you or someone you love has been charged with DUI, contact the Raleigh drunk driving defense lawyers of Law Office of Jim Black today at 919-600-4609.
