Wrong. In many cases, yes, you can avoid a DUI charge if police officers find that your BAC is under 0.08 percent. However, that is not always a guarantee against criminal charges. For example, if you were swerving all over the road, you could face charges even with a BAC of, say, 0.06 percent. Even the Delaware DMV website states that anything more than 0.05 percent is enough to get you arrested. Part of the reason behind this is that alcohol affects people differently. You may not have drunk in years, so it could have taken just one or two glasses of wine for you to drive unsafely. Meanwhile, someone who regularly drinks may still have been able to drive reasonably safely at a 0.06 percent BAC.
When you are facing a DUI in Delaware, you may underestimate its impact on your life. You may believe it easier to go through the legal motions to get the process over with and move on.
It has already started raining here in Wilmington, and it is going to continue as we enter fall and winter. This might seem like no big deal, but it can actually have a huge impact on your safety.

A car accident is not something you plan for. In fact, it's usually quite the opposite; most drivers do what they can to avoid getting into an accident. Unfortunately for some, accidents are unavoidable. So when they do happen, it's best to be prepared.
