Driving under the influence (DUI) occurs when a person’s blood alcohol level exceeds the state limits for operating a vehicle. These levels vary depending on age and vehicle type. For adults 21 years and over, the blood alcohol limit is 0.08 when driving a non-commercial vehicle. DUI charges can be brought against the driver by the state in a criminal prosecution, regardless of injury or accident. Civil suits can also be filed by individuals who were involved in DUI accidents due to the negligence of an impaired driver. These proceedings are designed to recover damages suffered by victims, punish DUI offenders, and protect the public from any future accidents.
