Impaired Driving Law

Posted by Derrick George | Feb 22, 2017 | 0 Comments

On behalf of Law Offices of Derrick E. George, P.C. posted in DUI on Wednesday, February 22, 2017.

It is a crime for a driver to have a BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) of 0.08 or greater if over age 21 or .002 or greater if under 21. In addition, Michigan has a high-BAC Law with enhanced penalties for anyone caught driving with a BAC of 0.17 or higher. However, drivers can be arrested at any BAC level if they exhibit signs of impairment while operating a motor vehicle.

What is the Michigan Impaired Driving Law?

Drivers with any amount of a Schedule 1 controlled substance and/or cocaine are subject to the same fines and penalties as drunk drivers, even if they show no signs of impairment. The only exception is an individual who has a valid medical marijuana card and is driving with marijuana in his or her system. Under the law, an officer must show they are impaired due to that marijuana.
