DUI Violations

More than 30,000 people are arrested each year in Minnesota for driving under the influence of alcohol. If a test reveals that your blood-alcohol concentration is 0.08 or higher, you will be charged with a DUI. If you are charged with a DUI, you are subject to a host of criminal penalties and administrative sanctions, depending on the offense. First-time offenders can face fines, up to one year in jail and suspension of driving privileges ranging from 90 days to one year. Subsequent convictions include higher fines, more jail time, use of an ignition interlock device, license plate impoundment and even license cancelation. Learn the facts and consume alcohol with caution to avoid getting into trouble.
