College drinking trends that can impact your future

As an Oklahoma college student, you are likely no stranger to change. From adapting to life away from home to developing good study habits and making it to classes on time, college life is often full of trial and error experiences. Beyond academics, you may also encounter various economic, cultural and social challenges during your life on (or off) campus. For many, alcohol-related issues pose a serious problem.  

When the state locks down your car ignition

Under penalty of DUI conviction in Oklahoma, you may still be able to operate a motor vehicle with certain restrictions. If you took a chemical test at the time of your arrest that registered your blood alcohol content level at .15 or higher, then the state requires you to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. If you happen to have more than one vehicle registered in your name, you will need one of these devices in each one.

Did you discuss abuse of prescription drugs before college?

Even though you would like to believe that the University of Oklahoma campus is drug-free, you understand that not everyone follows the rules. Like most other Oklahoma parents, you probably discussed staying away from illegal drugs before you sent your college student to OU here in Norman.

Suspected of DUI? Take a minute, take a breath -- or maybe not

Most, if not all, drivers in Oklahoma know what a Breathalyzer test is. It may not be something they have personally used, but they are aware that law enforcement officials use this test in order to check for suspected impairment. What is this test all about and how can it help a police officer arrest you for DUI?

Do you have questions about record expungement?

Anyone could make a serious mistake in his or her life that leads to severe consequences. Certain mistakes could even result in law enforcement getting involved, and you may have had criminal charges brought against you. If a conviction took place, you may have completed your sentence as needed and felt the desire to leave the mistake in your past. Unfortunately, your past could come back to haunt you.

A DUI conviction likely involves an interlock ignition system

When you make plans to meet some friends at a favorite Oklahoma pub or restaurant for a relaxing night on the town, you likely aren't expecting to wind up in jail at the end of the evening. In most instances, the chances of such a thing happening are extremely remote; however, if you plan to imbibe any alcoholic beverages while having a great time with your friends, the low chances significantly increase.

A DUI can derail your college plans

With the new semester starting up, you are probably already feeling the pressure of reading requirements, research papers and other projects. However, you may also be feeling pressure from another source. Although it may seem acceptable to relieve your stress with a few beers, the consequences of those good times may haunt you.
