Don’t Drink and Drive

While you may be a local and plan to just drive home after riding the bus around, our attorneys in Camden County urge you not to. It is not worth getting a DWI or worse, injuring someone or yourself in the process.

According to the Missouri Department of Revenue:

“A first-time DWI or BAC conviction may result in a 90-day suspension. You may be eligible for a Restricted Driving Privilege (RDP)."

“If you are convicted of a second intoxication-related traffic offense, regardless of the length of time between convictions, you will typically receive a 1-year revocation for accumulation of points. If you are convicted a second time for an alcohol- or drug-related offense within a five-year period, you may also receive a 5-year license denial.”

“If you are convicted three or more times of an intoxication-related traffic offense, you may receive a 10-year license denial.”

Again, while we urge you NOT to drink and drive, mistakes happen. If you do find yourself getting a DWI, call a DWI lawyer at the Lake of the Ozarks. One of our experienced lawyers may be able to help minimize the damage to your driving record. You may call today at 573-346-7231 or stop by at 85 Court Circle N.W. in Camdenton for your free consultation.
