"One of the most confusing consequnces of a South Carolina arrest for driving under the influence is the fact that many times the motorist will incur an immediate suspension of their of South Carolina Drivers License (SCDL). In this article I will discuss the factors that lead to a SCDL suspension stemming from a DUI arrest and what can be done."-- Travis A. Newton
Travis A. Newton Attorney for Driving Under the Influence (Lawyer)
South Carolina DUI laws are complex and DUI convictions carry very serious consequences. Do not be complacent after being arrested for driving under the influence in the State of South Carolina. If your South Carolina Drivers License was suspended for an implied consent violation there are extremely important filing deadlines that if missed WILL absolutely disqualify your eligibility for a Temporary Alcohol License leaving your only alternative a (severely) Route Restricted South Carolina Drivers License.
Why challenge the alleged implied consent violation?
A South Carolina Route Restricted Driver's License will allow SC motorists permission to drive to school, a place of employment and ADSAP only. The Alcohol Drug Safety Action Program (ADSAP) is an additional requirement (to restore driving priviledges) should a motorist choose not to challenge a South Carolina Driver's License (SCDL) suspension for an implied consent violation. A motorist must first register and then eventually complete the ADSAP program before the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles will reinstatement previously held driving privileges. This means that even after the six month SCDL suspension has expired a motorist will be temporarily disqualified from reinstating previously held driving privileges unless the motorist has been evaluated and registered for ADSAP classes.
Time is of the essence in filing the appropriate documentation with the SC Administrative Law Court to challenge a SCDL suspension for an implied consent violation. If you are illegible, DUI Lawyer Travis Newton will challenge your implied consent violation in an effort to reverse the suspension thus reinstating your SCDL, with the ADSAP requirement also rescinded. It is important to note that the ADSAP requirement will be reinstated if the motorist is later convicted of driving under the influence. Your DUI Lawyer should inform you if ADSAP is a requirement of any plea bargain or "deal" reached with a South Carolina Department of Public Safety Officer or The State of South Carolina.
DUI Defense Attorney Travis Newton believes more motorists are unfairly charged with DUI than all other serious crimes combined. Many are quick to blame police officers when innocent motorists are arrested for driving under the influence. Travis Newton believes blaming police officers is a mistake. Travis believes inaccurate assumptions (used as standards) in impaired driving investigations are responsible when innocent motorists find themselves charged with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. These inaccurate standards stem from inaccurate assumptions adopted by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the field of experimental psychology as it relates to impaired driving recognition. The truth is, there are many factors that may cause an innocent motorist to mimic signs of impairment.
An arrest for driving under the influence can leave the accused motorist scared, anxious, and confused. A conviction for DUI will add a permanent stain to a defendant's criminal record or South Carolina Law Enforcement Division criminal background check. If you have been charged with driving under the influence a free consultation with Anderson & Clemson DUI Lawyer Travis Newton may help you understand how an innocent motorist may be mistakenly identified as an impaired driver.
DUI Defense Attorney Travis Newton will answer these questions and address the specific facts of your case. There are factors that effect the manner in which the human body digests alcohol. A motorists' blood alcohol content may continue to rise long after his or her final drink of a particular setting. The result of a chemical test 1 to 2 hours after an arrest may be very different from the motorist's blood alcohol content while actually operating the motor vehicle.
A DUI arrest for a Clemson or Anderson University Student can be particularly frightening. Do not let a DUI charge be the reason for giving up on your goal of graduating from college. Just because you have been arrested for driving under the influence does not mean you have been found guilty of DUI. In fact, you are innocent until proven guilty. Anderson & Clemson DUI Lawyer Travis Newton will discuss possible defenses after hearing the facts of your case and review particular challenges a DUI charge may present for a college student.
