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
