Colorado DWI Laws and Drunk Driving Information
In the state of Colorado it is a crime for any person under the influence of alcohol or drugs to drive a vehicle. Like most states, Colorado has set a blood alcohol content limit where a driver is considered to be under the influence. In Colorado this BAC limit is 0.08. Colorado also has set a lower limit of 0.5 where a driver is only considered to be driving while ability impaired and can be arrested and possibly convicted of DWAI. After being pulled over a police officer may request that a driver submit to field sobriety tests, such as a breath test. The results of these tests may be used in any criminal prosecution for DWI or DWAI or for the purposes of an administrative license revocation.
Persons convicted of DWI or DWAI may have to complete community service and pay fines and court costs. Most people are offered probation. The terms of the probation will vary depending on facts of the DWI case. The Colorado Department of Revenue may revoke the driver’s license of anybody who drives with a BAC over 0.08. You may apply for a red license, or probationary license, which allows you to drive to and from work. This penalty is separate from the criminal penalties and can be imposed even if your Colorado DWI defense attorney is able to get the DWI charge dismissed completely.
