Mother-Son Duo Arrested for Drunk Driving

It’s a common scenario that many San Jose DUI lawyers come across.  A young man gets arrested for DUI, and immediately makes a call to his mother to come and get him from the station, leading to the parent speeding to the police station.  That is exactly what happened in Toronto, when a 27-year-old man who was charged with drinking and driving, called his mother to pick him up from the station.  Unfortunately, when the woman reached the station, she was arrested for DUI too.
It all began when the man was pulled over for speeding just north of Toronto.  He was administered a breathalyzer test, and was then taken to the police station for further testing.  He failed the test. 
He was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.  Just a short while later his mother arrived at the police station to pick him up.  However, when she spoke to the office about her son's case, the officer detected the smell of alcohol on her breath.  She was immediately administered a breath test, which she failed.  She was also charged with DUI. 
Both the mother and son have had their vehicles impounded.  They also had their licenses suspended for a period of 90 days.
Obviously, certain sections of the media that have reported on this story have gone to town with it, and a mockery has been made of the situation here.  Unfortunately, in many cases, San Jose DUI lawyers find a DUI is generally the result of a horrible mistake.  Sometimes, it happens that a person drinks alcohol, and does not realize that the smell of alcohol continues to remain on his or her breath several hours later.  It is highly likely that this woman did not realize that there was alcohol on her breath when she got a call from her worried son.

  1. Teenage drunk driving are rampant now a days that's why parents should monitor their children's activities in order for them to avoid drunk driving accidents. For parents regarding their son's case it cannot help when you rush things, take them slow so that we can find solutions clearly. You can also ask help from DUI lawyers.
