State by State Legal Blood Alcohol Limit (BAC)
While 0.08 is the BAC level that will result in a charge of DUI, DUII or DWI there are zero tolerance and enhanced penalty BAC levels that differ from state to state. Also note that the fines, fees and laws are different in each state. If you have had a DUI in California do not think that you will go through the same process and costs when being tried for a DUI in Oregon. There are also different levels of conviction that are often determined by the extent of the accident or drunk driving scenario.
