Attitude towards alcohol and drinking in the UAE is rather strict. It does not matter if you are a tourist or a resident, you should only consume alcohol in places that have a special license, like restaurants and hotels. So, it is not surprising that driving under influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Dubai is a serious criminal offense. The consequences that a drunk driver may face are pretty serious regardless of whether there was an accident or not. A court trial is unavoidable, hence you will definitely need the services of a DUI defense attorney.
What Consequences to Expect When Stopping a DUI?
While many countries allow some amount of liquor to be consumed, which is specified in the blood-alcohol level allowed to legally operate a vehicle, there is nothing like this in the UAE laws. The only conclusion one can make is that if the alcohol level is higher than zero, you will be charged with DWI. In this situation, you might expect:
- A jail term from 3 to 6 months;
- A hefty sum of money to pay as a fine;
- Losing your license for an extensive period of time;
- Vehicle confiscation;
- And even deportation (for expats).
In court, a DWI defense lawyer is able to help you negotiate a punishment as well as help you if a wrongful accusation has been made.
