BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 26, 2012) - Millions of Americans text or talk on the phone without using a hands-free device while driving on roadways in the state of California. In their minds they think that the worst thing that could happen is that they would have to pay a fine on a simple traffic ticket. But in reality, the consequences can be much worse. What the motorist gives law enforcement is a legitimate reason to stop a vehicle and, if justified, ultimately arrest the driver for Driving Under the Influence.
When you consume even a minor amount of alcohol and get behind the wheel of a car, your judgment can be impaired leading to riskier behavior while driving. Under this circumstance, you may be more inclined to text or talk while holding your cell phone which could result in a traffic infraction. This infraction can give an officer a lawful reason to stop you and, in many cases, conduct a DUI investigation if the officer believes that you are impaired from alcohol and/or drugs.
