In Kansas, it is illegal to drive a vehicle while under the influence of a substance. While most DUIs involve alcohol and illegal substances, they can also include prescription drugs. Unfortunately, many people do not realize how illegal this is, and they operate their vehicles assuming there will not be any serious consequences.

What Constitutes DUI?
While it is never okay to operate a vehicle under the influence of a mind-altering substance, many people take prescription drugs on a regular basis, leading them to think they are not affected by them in such a way that would make their driving dangerous. In many cases, they are even correct, but this doesn’t stop law enforcement from issuing a ticket or even arresting them.
You can be arrested for DUI if you:
- Operated or attempted to operate a vehicle
- Did so under the influence of a drug
- Were unable to operate the vehicle safely as a result
Dealing With Law Enforcement
While you are given the right to remain silent, many people offer up incriminating evidence about themselves as a way to try and explain what really happened. Make sure you avoid speaking with police during and after your arrest.
