In recent weeks, many people have decided to cancel their travel plans. However, others continue to travel, whether they need to attend a crucial business meeting or a family member’s wedding. Moreover, many people are scheduling plans to travel at some point in the future.

When it comes to travel, there is a myriad of factors to take into consideration, from reviewing itineraries to booking flights and hotels. However, some people are not even allowed to enter certain countries as a result of a drunk driving case.

Heading abroad

In some countries, people are not allowed to enter because they were charged with driving under the influence in the United States. This is very frustrating and disheartening for many travelers, so it is imperative to review the laws of the country you plan on visiting beforehand. In fact, many people are surprised to find out that they cannot enter Mexico or Canada as a result of their record. There are a number of countries around the world that also prohibit those with DUIs from entering.

Fighting DUI charges

This also highlights the importance of fighting DUI charges. Some people are accused of drunk driving even though their rights were not respected by law enforcement officials or other key details led to charges that were possible to fight (such as a faulty breathalyzer). In terms of travel, as well as the myriad of penalties that come with DUI charges such as the loss of driving privileges and financial penalties, it is imperative to deal with these allegations properly.
