The DUI Drugs page discusses the role that drugs play in DUI charges, and what drivers should know
Las Vegas, NV -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/08/2013 -- The Law Offices of Garrett T. Ogata, a leading Las Vegas defense practice, has announced the addition of a DUI Drugs feature to its website.

The DUI Drugs page explores the impact of substances other than alcohol that can also lead to DUI charges. Click on the link for more detail on a Las Vegas DUI lawyer.
“When most drivers think of DUI, they think of alcohol,” explains Garrett Ogata, “but there are many ways a person can be considered to be ‘under the influence’. Operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs is a serious charge, and drivers need to understand their rights if they are arrested.”
New advances in training have led to a rise in DUI drugs charges. Previously, it was often difficult for law enforcement officers to determine and demonstrate whether a driver was under the influence of drugs. Initiatives such as the Drug Recognition program educate officers in performing on-the-scene analysis to gauge whether a driver is under the influence of drugs. However, there can be a significant margin for error, as officers often do not have any medical training, and may erroneously presume drug use for pre-existing mental or medical illness. Being armed with information is important for any driver who is pulled over on suspicion of DUI drugs. Click on the link for further detail on a Las Vegas DWI lawyer.
