It’s Critical That You Protect Your Future
Like with many states, the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit in Virginia for those 21 and older is .08%. This limit is even lower for those under 21 or who are commercial drivers.
While an ignition interlock device is now required if you are convicted of a DUI-related offense, other penalties still vary depending on your BAC level and history of convictions. Common penalties include:
- License suspension
- Jail time
- Fees and fines
- Community service
You could face enhanced penalties as well if a child was in the vehicle at the time of your arrest, there was property damage, or you refused to submit a breath or blood test. If you did submit to a breath test, Mr. Pfeiffer can challenge the accuracy of the findings and the machine used for the test.
