Driving with a Blood Alcohol Content above a .08

Driving with a Blood Alcohol Content above a .08 is the first of the DUI's that relies on the result of a blood or breath test.

A charge of being above a .08 means the defendant is facing exactly the same penalty as a Driving Under the Influence or Driving While Impaired charge.
