Colorado law enforcement refers to drunk driving offenses as either
- DUI (Driving Under the Influence), triggered by .08% or higher BAC, or
- DWAI (Driving While Ability Impaired), triggered by .05% BAC or higher (but less than .08% BAC).
- DUI (driving under the influence) is a serious matter that needs to be handled by a professional attorney. This will make sure that all your rights are protected under the various rules of the law.
- Colorado modified the amount of time an offender is required to stay in jail for a DUI conviction and now imposes a 10-day minimum jail term for a second offense as well as a 60-day minimum jail sentence for a third and subsequent offenses. Additionally, the law has eliminated the requirement that an offender wear an ankle bracelet leaving only two options: either serve requisite time or apply for a work release program.
