DUI Violations

Drunk driving in Michigan is dangerous. State law defines drunk driving as operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or more. I will help you with almost any problem, including: 
  • Operating While Intoxicated (OWI)
  • “Super drunk driving” (driving with a BAC of 0.17% or more)

Penalties for Drunk Driving

Even if you’re a first-time offender, penalties can include: 
  • A $500 fine plus Court costs
  • 360 hours of mandatory community service
  • License suspension up to six months and driver responsibility fees
  • Up to 6 points on your driver’s license
  • 93 days in jail 
Repeat offenders face jail more time, more fines, and longer license suspension. If you drive under the influence of drugs, you can be charged under Michigan’s zero tolerance policy. If tests reveal that you have any illegal drugs in your system while you operated a vehicle, you can be charged even if you are not impaired.

Sanctions for Traffic Violations

If you are found responsible for a traffic violation, points can be added to your driving record and remain there for two years. It is important to fight tickets. Examples of Michigan’s point system for traffic violations are:
  • 2 points for basic speeding
  • 6 points for manslaughter, reckless driving, a BAC of 0.08 percent or more, refusing to take a chemical test, and fleeing a police officer
  • 4 points for drag racing, going 16 miles per hour or more over the speed limit, or failing to yield to emergency vehicles
  • 3 points for careless driving, disobeying a traffic signal, going 11 to 15 miles per hour over the speed limit, or failing to stop for a school bus
  • 2 points for refusing to take a PBT
