Zero Tolerance Law

What your teen should know:

  • It is illegal to use a fake ID to purchase alcohol.
  • The maximum blood alcohol content (BAC) allowed is 0.01%.
  • If you drive with a BAC level above 0.01%, you will lose your license.
  • DUI convictions stay on a driver's record for 13 years and will affect your car insurance premiums and employment for that entire period.
  • If you drive a motor vehicle with 0.05% or more of alcohol in your system, you can be prosecuted in court and your driver's license may be suspended or delayed until you are 21.
  • You can suffer a one-year license suspension, even if no driving was involved in a drug- or alcohol-related offense.
  • If you refuse to take a BAC test when asked by the police, your license will be suspended for one or more years.
  • A license may be refused to you if you have a history of alcohol or drug abuse or have used a license illegally.
