Boulder DWAI Attorney
Have you recently been charged with DWAI?
Many people assume that the only way in which a DUI can be charged is if it has been found that you have been operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of over 0.08. This, however, is untrue. In fact, in the state of Colorado, there is a charge that pertains to drivers who are impaired by alcohol, but have yet to reach this level of intoxication. It is known as Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI) and is charged if a driver has a BAC over 0.05 but less than 0.08.
The penalties that are associated with a DWAI are considerable less than a DUI, however, they are nothing to be treated lightly. On the administrative side, there will be no driver's license suspension for a first offense, but there will be eight points added to your record - these can add up, especially with subsequent charges, and can later come to create severe problems.
On the criminal side, a first DWAI will lead to incarceration between two days and 180 days, a monetary fine up to $500 and mandatory public service of up to 48 hours. Later charges, of either another DWAI or a DUI, will lead to even harsher penalties.
