Consignment RV Drivers, Be Careful With Your Prescription Medications

Here’s something to think about the next time you take your RV for a weekend outing. Your Houston Consignment RV center, PPL Motorhomes wants to remind you that you can get a DUI even if your prescription drugs are to blame. If you get pulled over for driving your RV erratically, you will likely be questioned for a DUI. If the officer believes that the prescriptions you are taking have caused him to intervene, then you could be facing an arrest for DUI. Regardless if they are legal prescriptions, you are responsible for your driving. It is not a guarantee that a judge will dismiss your case.

I know we’re all getting older and need various medications, or we have severe allergies, or pain medication for that sprained ankle that just doesn’t seem to be getting any better.  Regardless, remember to read all of the information that comes with your medication. It’s easy to ignore and throw away without looking at it. Don’t rely on the bottle containing the warnings about operating motorized vehicles. If it causes you to get a little drowsy, then you shouldn’t be getting behind the wheel.

This was just a small reminder to be safe and if you have any questions about Houston Consignment RVs, or just want to share a few of your RVing tips, don’t hesitate to let PPL Motorhomes know.
