DUI / BUI
You can be charged with DUI or BUI (Driving under the influence or Boating under the influence) if you submit to a breath test and blow over .08 BAC or if you refused the DUI breath test and the officer feels you are not driving a vehicle or operating a water craft safely due to alcohol or other drugs. Punishment can be severe, including but not limited to a 12 month hard license suspension, jail time, community service, alcohol evaluations, and DUI school. Once you have been arrested for DUI or BUI you must act quickly to keep your license. If the arresting officer served you with a DDS 1205 form you mustact within thirty (30) days of your arrest to fight the administrative license suspension. You can appeal the suspension or apply for an ignition interlock driving permit. Both of these options can have severe impacts on your ability to drive. Failure to meet this deadline will result in your license being suspended for 12 months.
