What is an “Extreme DUI”
A DUI is considered “extreme” if your blood alcohol level is at least 0.15 within 2 hours of operating a vehicle. When convicted, you will face suspension of your license, fines, and jail time. You will also have to pay for an interlock device to be installed in your vehicle and will need to undergo alcohol abuse treatment. For a first time conviction, you face fines amounting to over $2,000. That doesn’t include having to pay for an interlock device to be installed in all of your vehicles. You will also likely end up serving community service.
For a second Extreme DUI offense within five years of your first offense, you will face at least 120 days in jail and over $3,000 in fines. Once again, this does not include the installation of an interlock device. Plus, your license can be revoked for 12 months and you will end up serving community service.
