What Are The Top Misconceptions People Have About A DUI Arrest?


Transcript:

Attorney Myles Berman® explains one of the most common misperceptions are for people who are arrested for driving under the influence of drugs being marijuana. In almost every case, every client tells us that they have a medical marijuana card. Oftentimes, they think that merely having a medical marijuana card is somehow a defense to driving under the influence of drugs. Not only is it not a defense, it’s not even relevant. The officer will usually tell somebody who is driving under the influence of marijuana that they are not even interested in their medical marijuana card. So that’s a huge misconception. Another misconception is driving under the influence of prescription drugs. Oftentimes, people who are taking medication don’t realize that the medication that the medication they are taking can, in fact, cause them to be arrested for driving under the influence of drugs even though the medications themselves may not be impairing them.

In addition, sometimes people who are taking medication also drink alcohol and don’t necessarily realize that the mixture of the two, they can, in fact, be prosecuted for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. I don’t know if it’s a misconception but most common comments that I hear from our clients are Mr. Berman®, I’ve heard about you for years. I’ve listened to you in the media and I never thought I would need you. Another misconception that most people have is because they think they were arrested and because the breath test indicates a 0.08 or greater, which is the legal limit in California, that they may, in fact, must be guilty while in reality, breath testing is not accurate at all, in my opinion. Contact Top Gun DUI Defense Attorney Myles L. Berman® serving clients throughout Southern California and he will represent you with the care and attention you expect.
