DUI Attorneys in Midvale, UT
Utah Lowers Legal Limit to .05%
Across the United States, noncommercial drivers are prohibited from driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or greater. In Utah, however, this legal limit was lowered to .05%. This landmark change was implemented at the beginning of 2019. This means that you could face DUI (driving under the influence) charges for operating a vehicle with a lower BAC. You could face fines, the loss of your driver’s license, and even jail time if you are arrested for and charged.
At Haskins James, our Midvale DUI lawyers represent drivers across Salt Lake County who have been accused of driving under the influence. This new, lower limit has significantly altered the landscape of DUI defense, but we have remained ahead of the curve and are still aggressively defending our clients’ rights and fighting for reduced penalties, acquittals, and dismissals. With our over 50 years of legal experience, we are positioned to deliver results in these technical cases.
