Fines - Aspects of DWI - Defensive Driving
If you’re 17 and over, here’s what happens if you’re stopped for drinking and driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or greater.
Some people, particularly teenagers, can reach a .08 BAC with two or three beers an hour.
- up to a $2,000 fine
- 72 hours to 180 days in jail
- driver’s license suspension of 90 days to one year
Remember to Keep it Safe
- Don't drink and drive.
- Designate a driver.
- Call a cab.
- Spend the night where you are, if possible.
- Who’s driving tonight? If you’ve been drinking, it’s not you.
