What is the Legal Limit for Commercial Drivers?
Unlike other motorists, commercial drivers are held to incredibly high standards, federal regulations, and state laws. In fact, in the state of Idaho, a commercial driver driving a commercial vehicle will be considered intoxicated if he or she has a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.04% or more.
What is the Legal Limit for Adults?
Other adult motorists who are 21 years of age or older and driving their personal vehicle are considered intoxicated if they have a BAC of 0.08% or more. Additionally, commercial drivers receive suspensions for both their personal driving privileges and, separately, their commercial driving privileges can receive a more severe suspension. In some cases, their commercial driving privileges can be banned for life.
Because commercial drivers are held to such stringent standards, it will be crucial to enlist the help of a skilled Idaho Falls DUI attorney. Even a first-time conviction can lead to the suspension of a commercial driver’s license for one year. When the stakes are high, we can be trusted to go the distance to protect your rights.
