Boating under the influence can ruin a day on the waterways

As the spring weather approaches, boaters are going to start turning out on the waterways in droves. It is imperative that you understand that your day on the water can turn bad quickly if you opt to operate your boat after consuming alcohol. Boat operators are covered under laws aimed to prevent drunk boating, so be sure to stay sober so your day of fun doesn't include a trip to jail.

What is the role of a designated driver?

On the surface, the answer seems pretty simple: The designated driver is the person who remains sober so he or she can legally drive everyone else in the party around or home. If you've ever been a designated driver, though, you know there's a lot more to this story.

Hitting a bicyclist results in DUI charge for McColl councilman

A McColl, South Carolina, Town Councilman was arrested on suspicion of driving drunk Saturday, Feb. 4, after striking a 38-year-old bicyclist later that evening with his car. The victim was transported to a Scotland county hospital and treated for minor injuries before being released.

More reliable tests are needed to determine drug impairment

The need for tests to determine if a person is driving while high on drugs is something that has come up quite often recently. Unlike blood alcohol concentration tests, there aren't any reliable tests that can determine a person's current intoxication level for drugs like marijuana. The blood test for marijuana can only determine if a person has used the drug in the past, but it doesn't differentiate between a person who used the drug an hour prior to the test or a month before the test.
