Understanding the DUI Process
No matter what state you are in, operating a motor vehicle with a blood
alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or higher is illegal. If you are pulled
over by a police officer, he or she must have reasonable suspicion that
you are driving under the influence.
Reasonable suspicion could include visual cues like:
- Speeding or suddenly breaking
- Swerving or drifting
- Slow response to stop signs or traffic lights
- Failure to use turn signals
- Jerky movements, either braking or changing lanes
- Suddenly stopping when seeing the officer
- And more
The officer may ask you to take a series of sobriety or chemical tests,
which include breath, blood, and urine tests. Refusing to take a test
can result in harsh punishment, like the loss of your drivers’ license.
If you are convicted of a DUI for the first time, you could face:
- Up to $2,500 in fines
- Up to one year in jail
- At least one year driver’s license suspension
- Possible ignition interlock device
