Some Alcohol Facts You May Not Know About

Alcohol can not only get you a DUI when abused, it can also do a lot of other nasty things to your body. Alcohol is composed of small methanol molecules, 20% of which don't even get metabolized and go right into the bloodstream. This is also why "chugging" is a really bad idea. It basically overloads your system by putting too much in, too quickly. It can cause heart issues and make sound judgment almost impossible.

Alcohol is also really on your breath!  Since the methanol molecules are so small, they enter the lungs and are exhaled. This is why having a mint won't fool a breathalyzer, it really is literally on your breath.

No matter what, never operate a vehicle or any machinery under the influence of any substance. If you live in Burlington, Essex, Colchester, Winooski, Williston, Shelburne or anywhere in the State of Vermont, and have been arrested or charged with DUI or any crime, call Handy Law for aggressive and experienced legal defense.
