Alleged drunk driver may need to pay for replacement of visitor kiosk

Earlier this month, a man suspected of driving under the influence (DUI) crashed into a visitor kiosk located on the Davidson Mesa. The kiosk has been a fixture on U.S. 36 for over 20 years. Unfortunately, visitors will now be required to find maps elsewhere, as the kiosk has been deemed to be beyond repair. Officials have not definitively decided yet whether or not to replace the kiosk, but it will likely be replaced.

It is possible that the man who has now been arrested on DUI charges related to the accident will be forced to pay for resurrection of the popular kiosk. What many individuals do not know is that suspected DUI offenders can be held both criminally liable for their behavior and civilly liable for any damages that their behavior has caused.

This is a primary reason why it is critical to contact an experienced attorney upon being arrested on suspicion of DUI. Everything that you say and do in the wake of arrest may be held against you not only in a criminal context but in a civil context as well.

In addition, another lesson may be learned from this particular case. The accident was initially considered a hit-and-run. However, the suspected DUI offender was caught and arrested in less than 24 hours. Though one's fight or flight instincts may scream to flee the scene of an accident, potential penalties for doing so can cause convicted offenders to be imprisoned or fined a great deal more than if they had not run from the scene. Rather than running, it is best to call an attorney.
