Spring has arrived in Ohio, and with the warmer temperatures and budding trees comes a feeling of celebration. Ohioans are ready to relax and have some fun, and there’s no better time to let your hair down than during a Spring Break vacation.
Although Spring Break is a great time to drink and party, it’s also a time of year when police will be ramping up their efforts to keep drunk drivers off the roads. Getting pulled over and charged with a DUI can dampen the spirits of any celebration, as well as leave you with a heap of court fines, a suspended drivers license, and possibly even jail time.
If you are charged with a DUI, you will be asked to submit to a test that determines if your blood alcohol content (BAC) puts you over the legal limit. These tests can be used for your breath, urine, or blood. In Ohio, the legal limit is .08 BAC. If you test over .17 BAC, it means you’ve tested over what is called the “high test limit,” and you could incur additional penalties on top of your DUI charge. A DUI can affect other aspects of your life, such as your car insurance rates, your ability to get a job, or even your chances of renting a great apartment.
It is possible, however, to avoid the charge and subsequent disastrous effects of a DUI altogether. Enjoy your Spring Break while still protecting yourself from getting pulled over and arrested under suspicion of drinking and driving.
