Indiana DUI law is similar to that in many other states, but DUI crimes are prosecuted aggressively here. It’s important that you select an experienced criminal defense attorney skilled in defending against DUI crimes if you are accused.
DUI Limits In Indiana
Blood alcohol content (BAC) level limit for underage drivers is .02 percent. For drivers 21 and older, the BAC limit is .08 percent. The BAC limit for commercial drivers is .04 percent.
If a driver is pulled over and the chemical test shows that his or her BAC is above the legal limit, the driver may be charged with DUI. Under Indiana state law, a second DUI is classified as a felony offense. This means that along with facing the maximum penalties for driving under the influence, a felony conviction will result in the loss of many personal freedoms. You may lose your right to vote, your right to purchase a firearm and your right to obtain a passport.
