Over 36,000 people were arrested for Operating a Vehicle under the Influence (OVI, commonly referred to as DUI) in Ohio during 2010. This large number reflects a growing trend of adults and even minors being arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The incidence of drunk driving fatalities and injuries has declined according to Ohio State Highway Patrol. However, the number of traffic stops and DUI checkpoints in Ohio has risen.
If you or a loved one has been arrested for DUI in Columbus, you are undoubtedly concerned about how the charges can affect your short-term and long-term future.
