Oregon driver hits school bus; police suspect driver was impaired

People make mistakes while driving all the time. Drivers get distracted and may cause an accident. However, this does not automatically mean that they have committed a crime. Sometimes, police and other law enforcement officials might be quick to assume alcohol or drugs were involved in the accident. These assumptions could lead to drunk driving charges. Despite what law enforcement officers may think at the time of the accident, they need proof of drug or alcohol use in order for a DUI charge to stick in Oregon.

Under the DUII limit may not mean off the hook in Oregon

When police pull over someone they suspect has been driving drunk, they use a range of tests to determine his or her level of intoxication. Even if you don't have any firsthand experience, you've probably heard or read stories about the signs that officers look for: bloodshot eyes, the smell of alcohol on the driver's breath, and a litany of other sobriety tests, such as having the driver walk a straight line or recite the alphabet backwards.
