The scene is all too familiar: you go out for a couple of drinks. Maybe you stopped on the way home from work to celebrate closing that big business deal. Maybe you were at a wedding where you only had a couple of drinks so your spouse or date could drink. Maybe you went “out on the town” with your buddies but you really didn't drink much because you were the designated driver.
You even stopped for pizza before getting on the road just so enough time passed before you got behind the wheel. You felt fine. You started driving and were driving fine. But it's 2:00 a.m. on a Friday, so you are a moving target. All of a sudden the lights go on and you find yourself getting pulled over by the police.
You think to yourself, “what did I do wrong? I know I'm not drunk. I feel fine.” The officer comes up to your window and asks, “How much have you been drinking?” You tell him the truth. The officer is on a roving DUI patrol and he's out hunting DUI drivers, and he says, “Really, how much have you had to drink?” You're feeling helpless, confused, overwhelmed, and frightened.
