DUI In Virginia

Lawyers in Virginia

In Virginia, DUI is a very serious charge, now more than ever. Driving a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol or other drugs may result in being charged with drunk driving. Driving under the influence of alcohol, drunk driving, drinking and driving is commonly referred to as a DUI or DWI. In Virginia, a DUI is the same as a DWI.

DUI Laws In Virginia

Another type of offense is a DUID. DUID is driving under the influence of drug(s) or a combination of alcohol and drugs. Regardless of whether you have been charged with a DUI, DWI or DUID in Virginia, the penalties for a DUI conviction are very serious.

The penalties you receive from the court is only the beginning. You stand to lose your job, pay an exorbitant rate for car insurance, lose your ability to drive either completely or have your driving privileges extremely restricted.

The courts have had a lot of pressure put on them lately to not give any kind of break to those charged with an offense where drinking and driving (DUI in Virginia) are involved. These laws apply not only to automobiles, but also to boats and aircraft as well.

When the laws against drunk driving (DUI) were originally passed in Virginia, a person was convicted based on a variety of factors such as driving symptoms, field sobriety tests. The drunk driving laws (DUI laws) have evolved considerably and now the standard for determining if a person is driving under the influence is a lot more objective in Virginia. The drunk driving statutes (DUI laws) in Virginia today call for a variety of standardized tests and scientific test to determine if the person who is charged with a DUI in Virginia had a blood alcohol content over the legal limit.

The three main factors the Virginia courts use to determine whether a person is guilty of a DUI in Virginia is the officer’s observations of the accused at the time of offense, field sobriety tests (FSTs) and the intoxilyzer. The current model is the Intox ECR/II.

The Intoxilyzer is used to determine a person blood alcohol content (BAC). Through out the entire United States, a BAC of .08% or higher is deemed to be an illegal if driving.

Drinking while driving (DUI) is illegal in Virginia. However, it is only illegal to drive after drinking if your BAC is higher than the legal limit.

If you are under the age of 21 and you drink and drive (DUI) , even a BAC as low as .02% is enough to convict someone of drinking and driving. The blood-alcohol limit for aircraft pilots is 0.04%, and for commercial drivers 0.04% or 0.05%, depending upon the jurisdiction.
