Driving under the influence (DUI) is not limited to illegal drugs or Alcohol that cause impairment. Have you ever taken an allergy pill such as Benadryl or even heart or anxiety medication before getting in your car and driving? You could be on your way to a DUI. What we consider harmless medications or even legal drugs can cause impairment and affect response times while driving a vehicle. If you should have an accident while driving your vehicle after taking what you thought was a completely legal and harmless drug has now become a crime. Always read the warning labels on any medications you take before you decided to get behind the wheel, so you don’t have to battle with criminal offense of DUI.
