When a person has been arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the possibility of jail or prison time is always a concern, as well as the potential loss on his or her driving privileges. Those arrested and/or charged with a criminal DUI offense should seek experienced legal counsel for representation and guidance through what may be a difficult legal process.
A DUI (driving under the influence) is a criminal act which involves a person operating an automobile, motorcycle, truck, or another form of transportation while under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, controlled substances, or any other substance which may impair your ability to safely operate a vehicle.
You only have 10 days from the date of a DUI arrest to request an administrative hearing with the department of motor vehicles.
At this point, the accused may request to be granted hardship driving privileges while actively involved in the defense of DUI charges.

A person may be arrested for a DUI while on a bicycle, moped, golf cart, or while operating any other form of transportation.
