Minor Operating a Vehicle Above 0.02 BAC

Ignition Interlock Devices
Among the many penalties that you could face for a criminal conviction, you may be required to install an ignition interlock device. This is a machine that acts as a breathalyzer in your vehicle, and will not allow you to start your car if it detects any alcohol on your breath.
Driver's License Suspension and Revocation
DUI convictions often result in serious penalties. One of which is almost always a driver's license suspension sentence. This can last anywhere from a few months to several years depending on your charge, and you will need to reapply in the case of driver's license revocation.
Field Sobriety or Breath Tests
Officers must have probable cause in order to arrest you for DUI, and they can usually obtain this through a field sobriety test. After an arrest, you will usually be required to submit to a chemical test such as a breath test in order to determine an accurate BAC.
