I realized I was unsafe to drive, so I pulled over on the interstate to sleep it off. Can I be charged with DUI in Vermont?
It depends. If your car is running or you are otherwise in actual physical control of your vehicle while under the influence of alcohol on the highway then you may be charged with DUI in Vermont.
