Quick action required to save your license after DUI arrest

Did you know that you have up to two weeks after your DUI arrest to protest your driver's license suspension through a Kansas administrative hearing? You do not have to sacrifice your driver's license simply because you have been accused of driving under the influence. In fact, a Kansas attorney may be able to provide you with the criminal defense assistance you need to maximize the outcome of your driving while intoxicated case.

Administrative hearings for retaining your driver's license are accompanied by some strict rules. That is why it makes sense to enlist the help of an attorney with experience in this particular setting. The requirements for successfully completing an administrative hearing can be confusing and difficult to understand for the layman, but a legal professional may be able to provide the support you need to stay behind the wheel -- sometimes even after multiple offenses.

Many Kansans facing drunk driving charges are not aware that they not only face driver's license suspension after their arrest -- they could also be subject to ignition interlock requirements. These devices are generally installed at the expense of the alleged drunk driver. Ignition interlocks use breath test technology to determine whether a driver can start his or her vehicle. Drivers are required to blow into the device before starting the car -- and at designated intervals throughout their drive. Testing positive for alcohol can have significant consequences for those with installed ignition interlocks.

An arrest for drunk driving does not mean that you are automatically considered guilty. The fact is that you have a number of legal options after your arrest and arraignment. You can improve the likelihood of a positive outcome -- and perhaps avoid the use of an ignition interlock device -- by trusting a legal professional to provide you with the assistance you need. We provide more information on Kansas DUI defense on our webpage.
