Columbia DUI Lawyer

As South Carolina's state capital, there is a great deal of residents, and therefore there can be a great deal of traffic at various times throughout the day. Spanning over 125 square miles, and containing a population of roughly 116,000 residents according to the 2000 U.S. Census, this city is a densely populated area. With so many local residents and occupied streets, there is a great potential for accidents and injuries. Fortunately, there are many safety laws in place regarding the flow of traffic and various other elements. When these laws are broken, the results can often be catastrophic and even deadly in some cases.

One very serious law is that of driving under the influence. It is illegal for an individual to operate a motor vehicle while their BAC (blood alcohol content) is at or above the legal limit of 0.08%. If you are a resident of Columbia, and you are suspected of driving under the influence, then you may be asked to perform some field sobriety tests. These can include the walk and turn, one leg stand, and the HGN test. These are not pass-or-fail tests; they are utilized for the sole purpose of gathering enough evidence to warrant an arrest. It is also important for you to know that you are not legally required to perform these tests. You can decline to perform a field sobriety test, and you cannot be legally penalized for refusing.
