Although “Blue Christmas” is a terrific holiday song, don’t let it become a reality by getting a DUI. The best way to avoid a DUI or OWI is to use good judgment when drinking. Not only is driving under the influence dangerous, but you could face jail time, fines and costs, license suspensions, probation and AA meetings.
If you do find yourself in a pickle, contact an experienced Indiana DUI Lawyer. The blood alcohol content (BAC) limit in Indiana is 0.08 percent. Anything above a 0.15 percent BAC increases penalties from 60 days in jail and a fine of up to $500, to up to a year incarceration and up to a $5,000 fine. In addition, Indiana utilizes what is called the implied consent law which can result in a revocation of your driver’s license if you refuse an alcohol test.
Both the operation of breath test machines and the conducting of field sobriety tests must be implemented in very specific ways following strict law enforcement guidelines. Failure of law enforcement to follow these strict and demanding guidelines could result in a suppression of blood alcohol results. Being suspected of impaired driving can obviously be very stressful.
