Action Plan

DUI Enforcement

Driving under the influence (DUI) laws restricts individuals from driving a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) greater than .08. There is also a “zero tolerance” administrative per se law (administrative sanction) for drivers under the age of 21 with a BAC level of .01. In terms of the specific goals of this project, this component constitutes a strategy to identify and intervene with intoxicated per sons.
