Suspicion of DUI doesn't keep Tennessee man from employment

The public tends to be hard on anyone who is merely suspected of drunk driving, even if that person has served his community. In February, a former deputy from Rutherford County, Tennessee, was pulled over and charged with DUI. Since his arrest, he has been rehired within his county, a move that some are challenging due to the drunk driving charge.

More DUI arrests in Tennessee this year and this holiday

In a recent meeting, Tennessee's Commissioner of Safety and Homeland Security Bill Gibbons discussed some of his predictions about state arrests during 2012. In the state, drunk driving is already taken seriously and law enforcement focus reflects that.

Just a Traffic Ticket?

Unless you are a commercial truck driver with a Commercial Drivers' License ("CDL"), most licensed Tennessee drivers don't know the collateral consequences of a speeding ticket or traffic offense, either in state or elsewhere. Tennessee, like most states, attaches a number of points to your driving history with the Department of Safety based on the severity of the violation. Accumulating a total of twelve (12) driving violation points within a year could result in your license being suspended or having to attend a conference with a member of the Department of Safety who is usually a Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper.
