Many traffic violations are simple offenses that can be handled quickly in court, or can simply be paid through the mail without too many lasting repercussions. But when it comes to DUI traffic violations, it’s not always that easy. With over 200 million licensed drivers on the road today, and about 30,000 fatal crashes happening in just one year, drunk driving is something that comes with serious consequences.

Let’s be honest for a minute: everyone makes mistakes, and even if you’ve always been the Responsible One in your friend group, it’s possible that you’ve slipped up and gotten behind the wheel after having one too many drinks. But just because you made a mistake, that doesn’t mean you should have to suffer the same consequences as people who just don’t care about being safe. Hiring a DUI defense attorney may not ensure that you get your charges dropped completely, but you definitely have a better chance at beating your ticket — or getting the charges reduced, at the very least — if you have a DUI defense attorney by your side.

Here are just a few other reasons why drivers with DUI traffic violations look to traffic violation lawyers for help:
