All 50 states have now set .08% blood alcohol concentration (BAC) as the legal limit for driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while impaired (DWI). For commercial drivers, a BAC of .04% can result in a DUI or DWI conviction nationwide. For those under 21 years old, there is a zero tolerance limit―even the smallest amount of alcohol is grounds for a DUI or DWI arrest.
Should you ever find yourself faced with a DUI or DWI arrest, your first step should be to hire the services of a DUI or DWI attorney. DUI attorneys and DWI lawyers are highly trained in the DUI and DWI laws of your state, and often they can lessen your fines or penalties. Beware of offers such as a free drug and alcohol test—nothing related to DUIs is free, except for maybe time spent in prison.
Being convicted of driving under the influence can also impact your life in ways you may not be aware of, including loss of employment, prevention of employment in certain jobs, higher insurance rates, serious financial setbacks, personal and family embarrassment, and having that conviction on your driving records for years―if not forever.
Whether called a DUI or a DWI in your state, DMV.org shows you what the penalties will be for driving under the influence and how it will affect your driving privilege. We'll also lead you to attorneys who specialize in handling DUI or DWI cases in your state, in case you are looking for legal representation.
