Fort Wayne DUI Criminal Defense
In Fort Wayne Indiana the penalties for operating a vehicle while intoxicated, also known as a OWI, are severe. If you get arrested for a DUI in Indiana, you need to get an experienced DUI Lawyer today.
Your chances of being in an accident increases with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .04%. This is only half the legal limit in Indiana, which is .08&. When your BAC reaches .06%, still under the legal limit, your chances of being involved in a crash are double those of a sober driver. When your BAC hits .08%, the legal limit in Indiana, you are three times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash. So the more you drink, the greater your chances increase of being in an accident.
If your BAC is .08% or higher, Indiana considers you legally drunk. If you’re a commercial driver, that number drops to .04%. And if you’re under 21, the limit is only .02%. When suspected of DWI or OWI, a police officer will administer a DUI test to determine your Blood Alcohol Content or BAC. You may refuse to take this test, but your license will be revoked on the spot, and possibly suspended for one year.
