Spokane DUI Attorney Legal Advice

Most likely you have heard a lot about the risks of driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs, and know most of the reasons why it is a bad idea to risk drinking and driving, but if you are under 21 there are rules you may not be aware of, that can increase your chances of a DUI arrest with much less drinking then you might think. You may be aware that the legal limit of blood alcohol content (BAC) in all 50 states currently is at .08% BAC that is considered legally intoxicated. You may have calculated exactly how many drinks over what time span will be likely to keep you below the .08% level (generally four normal drinks over two hours for a 170 pound man will get you to that amount of alcohol in your blood). But if you are under 21 and relying on those facts that you know, it may be what you don't know that gets you arrested and in need of a Spokane DUI attorney.

Zero Tolerance and What it Can Mean to You

All 50 states have 'Zero Tolerance' laws that say that the maximum allowed BAC for drivers under 21 year old is .02%. The amount of alcohol that it will take you to get to that level, obviously, is significantly lower than the four drinks in two hours that you may have memorized as your 'safety zone' when learning about DUI law. And if you are under 21, and you make that error, and you drive a car with a BAC above .02%, the law says that you are driving under the influence of alcohol, and you will need to talk to a Spokane DUI attorney if you are arrested.

Be Smart, Drive Safe and Sober

The best option by far is to avoid the risk and arrange for a designated driver if you are drinking. Consider other options like budgeting for a cab ride or keeping a short list of good friends who are willing to help keep you out of trouble, and will come pick you up if you are drinking. Whatever it takes, learn how to eliminate the risk of DUI, avoid the need to call a Spokane DUI attorney (and the bills that come with that option), and stay safer.
