According to US Driving Laws, in Colorado, motorists are prohibited from driving while under the influence (DUI) of alcohol and drugs and driving while their abilities are impaired (DWAI) by alcohol and drugs. If you are suspected of driving while drunk, you will be asked to take a Breathalyzer or a blood test. If your blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08 percent or higher, you will be charged for a DUI. If your BAC is between .05 and .08 percent, you’ll be charged for DWAI.
A DUI is a misdemeanor offence and the penalties for a first-time DUI can include: 5 days up to 1 year in jail, a fine up to $1,000, revocation of your license for 9 months, community service and alcohol education classes. If the driver had a Blood Alcohol Content BAC lower than 0.08%, they will face charges for DWAI instead, based on police observations. The penalties are less severe with only 2 to 180 days in jail, a fine up to $500, 8 points against your license and lesser community service hours.
If you are charged with a DUI or DWAI, you’ll receive a court summons. During your court hearing, evidence will be presented and you will either plead innocent or guilty. Since drunk driving is a serious offense, drivers arrested for DUI will be given a minimum and maximum jail sentence and will likely be required to post bail. You might have to stay in jail before your court hearing. This is the perfect time to call a bail bonds agent. Nobody wants to be stuck in jail while drunk or inebriated. Aside from not being able to take care of their case and having to face all the penalties and consequences, the experience of being in prison right after the DUI occurrence is not a pleasant one.
