How a DUI Will Affect Your License
In Colorado, an individual can be arrested for drunk driving if their blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08 or higher. However, driving while ability impaired (DWAI) can be produced by a BAC of .05 or higher, but less than .08.
All individuals are different, so it cannot be determined with certainty how many drinks it takes to reach an illegal BAC. If you are arrested for driving under the influence, your license suspension will depend on any prior offenses you have been convicted for.
Your license may be suspended for the following lengths of time:
- First offense: Nine months for DUI, but no suspension for DWAI
- Second offense: One year for both DUI and DWAI
- Third offense: Two years for both DUI and DWAI
Along with the suspension of your license, you may also be faced with time in jail, heavy fines, and mandatory installment of an interlock ignition device. As a Colorado Springs DUI defense attorney, it is my job to fight for your rights and see that they are being protected. Because a suspended license can severely impact your freedoms, including your ability to get to work, I will fight diligently for your best interests.
