Driving Under the Influence (DUI) adds the effects of alcohol or intoxicants and impairs your ability behind the wheel. You could be charged with a DUI while operating your car, truck, watercraft, motorcycle, ATV and more. In Michigan, the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.08.
If you are charged with a DUI or Drunk Driving, immediately seek legal representation from a skilled attorney. Let our DUI attorneys investigate the legality of the traffic stop and the validity of the field sobriety test. All details and evidence against you must be examined when defending you against DUI charges.
DUI & Drunk Driving Violations
Michigan law defines standard drunk driving as operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol level of more than 0.08. Drunk driving charges and related impaired driving offenses can have a serious impact on your life. That’s why it’s important to understand the law, your rights and your legal options when facing drunk driving charges. Securing the right DUI attorney to represent you may be the difference in getting dui charges dismissed or reduced.
The State of Michigan has had hard-hitting penalties for DUI offenders and beginning October 31, 2010, drivers with a (BAC) level above 0.17 are now subject to Michigan’s ‘super drunk driving law’. Drivers convicted under this new definition will be subject to enhanced punitive and license sanctions and will also be required to undergo one year of alcohol rehabilitation, which may be an alcohol treatment program or a self-help program.
