Tacoma DUID Attorney - Driving under the Influence of Drugs

Driving Under The Influence is most commonly associated with alcohol use, but the use of any intoxicating substance while driving is still a crime under the DUI statutes. If you have been using any drug, be it marijuana, cocaine or even a prescription that affects your alertness, you may be charged with Driving Under the Influence of Drugs. If you have been charged with this crime, it is always in your best interest to immediately contact a skilled Seattle DUI attorney.

A lot of people accused of DUID try to defend themselves by explaining that the drug was a prescription, so it was ok to use while driving. Unfortunately, many prescription bottles specifically warn users not to drive while using the drug and most pharmacists will instruct you to always use your best judgment while taking prescriptions, even if the bottle has no direct warnings about driving. Thankfully, your Seattle DUI attorney has a variety of options to present a strong drunk driving defense that will help you fight these charges.

Our Seattle DUI Lawyer Can Find Faults With The Evidence

The best defense for a driving under the influence of drugs accusation is insufficient evidence. This defense can be surprisingly easy for your Seattle DUI lawyer, as there are actually very few tests to evaluate if a person is driving while using drugs. Field sobriety tests do not apply to drugs, nor to breathalyzers. Urine tests can measure drug use, but they will not show when the person actually took the drugs and if they were affecting the driver at the time they were driving.

If you have been accused of driving under the influence of drugs, please contact and Associates to schedule a consultation with a skilled Seattle DUI lawyer.
