Traffic tickets could cost more than fines and points

Most people here in Amherst and elsewhere tend not to follow the rules of the road all the time. Some people speed, some roll through stop signs and some push the limit when it comes to getting through yellow lights. When police officers witness these actions, they often result in traffic tickets. If not taken seriously, these citations could cost more than just points on their driver's licenses and fines.

What does it mean to face charges of aggravated DWI?

Nearly everyone with a driver's license knows that driving after drinking is illegal if a person's blood alcohol concentration reaches or is above the state's legal limit -- which is .08 in most instances. If convicted, an Amherst resident could face criminal penalties that include fines, jail time and more. However, under certain circumstances, the charges can come with potentially much stiffer penalties, which could lead to a charge of aggravated DWI.

Did a night out lead to public intoxication charges?

When most people go out with their friends, they intend to have a good time. They may find a place to hang out, see a show, get a meal or have a few drinks. When it comes to drinking, you know that you should never get behind the wheel of a vehicle after consuming alcohol. However, even if you avoid that particular activity, you could still end up facing alcohol-related charges.

Nurses often face additional ramifications from a DWI

Seeing flashing lights in the rearview mirror is never a good sign. When police stop an Amherst resident and suspect the individual of drunk driving, a driver's anxiety can skyrocket as he or she considers the consequences associated with a conviction. If that driver is a nurse, the situation can become even more stressful since nurses tend to face additional ramifications from a DWI conviction outside of the criminal justice system.
