DUI Violations

In 2012, nearly 13,000 people were arrested in Utah for DUI. If a test reveals that your blood-alcohol concentration is 0.08 or higher, you will be charged with DUI. A DUI arrest brings many consequences, starting with the immediate confiscation of your license, which is replaced with a temporary permit that lasts for one month. If you are convicted on a DUI charge, the penalties include using an ignition interlock device, paying fines, performing community service, undergoing treatment, having your license suspended, and, most seriously, going to jail. Utah has a zero tolerance policy for drivers under age 21 who are pulled over for a DUI. Those younger drivers can face license suspensions of up to two years.
