How does alcohol affect one's driving abilities?

Since the end of Prohibition, Hoosiers have been enjoying alcoholic beverages for a number of occasions. Many partake in drinking socially, while others do so as a way to relax. Still others suffer from a drinking problem that is pervasive in their day-to-day lives. None of these forms of alcohol consumption are illegal, but when these individuals choose to take to the road, they may break the law and cause a serious car accident that leaves unsuspecting motorists with significant harm. Unfortunately, these types of accidents occur more commonly than we like to think.

Facing criminal charges? Consider acquiring legal help

There are many aspects to a criminal prosecution. Physical evidence must be gathered, witnesses must testify, and prosecutors must put it all together with convincing legal arguments that persuade a jury that a defendant is guilty before a conviction can be obtained. Even each of these elements have smaller, yet just as complex, issues. For example, as we discussed on the blog last week, physical evidence may be drawn into questions when the legality of a search and seizure is at issue. Other matters, like chain of custody and witness bias, can play a critical role in a criminal case, too.

Search and seizure under the Fourth Amendment

Oftentimes when Hoosiers are charged with a criminal offense, prosecutors rely on physical evidence to build their case. This evidence is typically gathered by police officers as part of a search and seizure. However, the police cannot just stop and search individuals and their residences at random, as the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution protects citizens from unlawful search and seizure.

What makes semi-trucks so dangerous

If you find yourself instinctively increasing your caution when you notice a commercial truck in the next lane, you have good instincts. Semi-trailer trucks present several unique dangers on the road. Knowing about them can help you stay safer.
