Tennessee Car Accident Attorney G. Turner Howard Discusses Increasing Drunk Driving Arrests

Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) July 15, 2013

In the wake of recent state and federal changes to how evidence is collected in drunk driving cases, Knoxville car accident attorney G. Turner Howard says he expects the amount of DUI arrests to increase.

The dangers of drunk driving are well-documented. Despite the risks involved, thousands of people in Tennessee choose to get behind the wheel each year while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, said Howard, who represents victims of negligence. Fortunately, steps are being taken to prevent these drivers from causing serious and sometimes deadly car accidents.

According to a Times Free Press Article (Tennessee to see more DUI convictions, July 2), state laws dictating how police and attorneys handle DUI cases went into effect that could potentially lead to more than 3,000 additional drunk driving arrests every year throughout the state.

The article states that most of the changes in DUI law affect the arrest. Drivers in Tennessee who were stopped by police used to be able to refuse a sobriety test unless they injured or killed someone. New state law prohibits suspected drunk drivers from refusing to give a blood sample if the driver has killed or injured someone, has a previous DUI conviction, or has a passenger under 16 years old in his or her vehicle.

Furthermore, according to the report, an April U.S. Supreme Court ruling allows law enforcement officials to collect blood samples from suspected drunk drivers if getting a warrant compromises their evidence.

These changes in state and national law could land thousands of drunk drivers behind bars who would have otherwise been free to cause serious damage, said Howard, an auto accident lawyer in Tennessee. If youve been involved in an accident involving a drunk driver that results in personal injury or the death of a loved one, you might have grounds for a lawsuit against the negligent party. Its wise for injury victims and families who lost loved ones to consult with an attorney about their rights.
