If you need to drive to work or, worse, if your job involves driving, you may be unable to continue working. Furthermore it will limit your ability to do things like dropping your children off at school, or traveling to buy groceries.

What are the penalties for drunk driving?

If you are arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in South Carolina, one of your primary concerns may be the potential severity of the penalties you may face if convicted. These can range from fines to jail time and may also include conditions such as the revocation of your driver's license, or the installation of an ignition interlock device within your vehicle. It isn’t a stretch to then imagine how these penalties in turn could affect your professional life and may result in the loss of your job.

During a DUI traffic stop, there are a number of tests you may be asked to submit to. However, in the heat of the moment, you might be unsure how to respond. The fear of incrimination, even if you know you have not been drinking, can make the thought of taking any of these tests intimidating.
