Drunk Driving Defense May Come in Many Forms

A drunk driving defense strategy can potentially rely on the specifics of each drunk driving case.

An officer's observations and opinions may play a significant role in the prosecution of a drunk driving case. Some of those charged with drunk driving have based their defense on questioning the observations of the arresting officer.

Others defending themselves against a drunk driving charge have brought into question the accounts of witnesses, or those who tested as to the defendant's blood alcohol content.

Common drunk driving defenses include:

  • Involuntary intoxication, when someone has accidentally ingested drugs or alcohol without his or her knowledge.
  • Duress, when someone drives in order to avoid injury or death.
  • Necessity, in which one tries to prove that they drove in order to prevent something worse from happening.
