While we all know the dangers of drinking and driving, some of you may be surprised to learn that simply having the key in the ignition may cost you a DUI. This means that even if you are not driving at all, but have the key in the ignition, you may be cited with a DUI. The courts rationalize that the vehicle can easily be placed into motion from a state of having the key in the ignition. This rule applies even if the engine is not on.
