DUI laws come with serious penalties. Aside from being required to pay fines, people who are charged with DUI may also be put to jail for up to 6 years. The authorities may also suspend the driver’s license of the person charged and the vehicle that he used may also be impounded.

  • Illegal Per se law – this law implies the drivers to follow a strict BAC limit. The limit is 0.08 percent blood alcohol level. For commercial drivers like delivery trucks drivers, school bus drivers, tow trucks drivers and the like, the limit is 0.04 percent. There is also a limit for various “controlled substances. ” These include: methamphetamine, amphetamine, cocaine, heroin, marijuana, phencyclidine and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). People who are caught driving above the BAC limit or under a controlled substance will be charged with DUI.
  • Implied Consent Law – this means that a person who is suspected to be drunk cannot refuse for a blood, breath or urine test. The test can be demanded by the police officer even on a first offense. The person should know that the consent has already been given once the person step into the car. If the person refuses to take the test, the police can use a reasonable force to administer the test.
  • Open Container Law – this law states that “it is illegal for a person to operate or drive a motor vehicle with opened alcoholic beverages in the car.” It covers all alcoholic beverages; regardless of their alcohol volume. This rule doesn’t apply to a motor home or an RV, passengers of taxis, limousines, and buses.

If the person is charged with DUI, he is required to pay for the testing fees.
