Your first DUI arrest was probably a wake-up call. Whether you had never before driven after drinking, or you were just lucky not getting caught sooner, being handcuffed and processed was likely something you are not eager to repeat. Even if you were fortunate to have a lenient judge who sentenced you to community service, you may have promised yourself that it was your first and last mistake.
No one plans to drive over the legal limit, but sometimes it happens. Laws can vary from state to state, it is important to educate yourself on your state's drunk driving laws so you can make informed choices in the event of a DUI charge. In Kentucky, driving with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of more than 0.08 is enough to elicit a DUI (driving under the influence). For minors, the BAC limit is 0.02, and for commercial drivers it is 0.04. If you find yourself facing charges related to DUI, this is what you can expect for a first offense.
