Why You Need an Experienced Lawyer on Your Side
There are two levels of alcohol-related driving offenses in Colorado-both determined by the driver’s blood alcohol concentration. DWAI is the lesser of the two offenses, and is when a driver’s BAC is between 0.05% and 0.07%. DUI is more severe, and is when a driver’s BAC is 0.08% or higher. Those found driving while their ability is impaired by alcohol (DWAI) for the first time will receive 8 points toward a license suspension, pay a fine ranging from $100 to $500, spend 2 to 180 days in jail, and perform 24-48 hours of community service.
Drivers who are found to be under the influence (DUI) for the first time will have their license suspended for up to a year, pay a fine ranging from $300-$1,000, spend 5 days to 1 year in jail, contribute 48-96 hours in community service, and attend alcohol education classes for 3 to 9 months. Penalties increase when a person is arrested for their second, third, and subsequent charges. If you have been arrested for DUI, please contact our firm. Whether it is your first or fifth DUI, we have the ability to help you fight for your rights.
If a person is charged for DUID, or driving under the influence of drugs, they may receive similar penalties to those found driving under the influence of alcohol, but DUID cases are extremely hard to prove in a court of law. When a police officer charges a person with driving under the influence of drugs, the officer must prove that the driver was taking a drug that caused impairment to their motor skills, reaction time, and/or judgment. Due to limitations in technology, it is difficult to test a person’s drug levels, and prove how said drug may have caused impairment at the time the individual was operating a motor vehicle.
Unlike alcohol, there is no agreed-upon limit for which impairment is consistently demonstrated, and oftentimes, drugs remain in a person’s body for weeks or months after they initially ingested the drug. Some states have a per se law, which prohibits a person from operating a motor vehicle with any detectable level of an illegal drug, but Colorado does not have such a law to date. If you have been accused of driving while under the influence of drugs, it may be in your best interest to contact Reliance Legal.
