Being pulled over by the police is often an overwhelming event. For some motorists, it might be unclear why they were stopped; however, no matter the allegations, if a citation is issued, fines are likely to result. When drunk driving allegations are made, however, motorists could also face serious penalties. This charge is unlike other traffic violations and could result in the loss of a license, hefty fines and even jail time.
