MADD Wants BAC Lowered To .05%

In what may be the harbinger of things to come, Mother's Against Drunk Driving (MADD) launched an effort in Quebec to have the legal limit dropped to .05% BAC for most drivers.  Quebec indefinitely postponed a proposal to lower the maximum legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) for driving to .05 because of very strong and widespread public opposition to the action.  MADD Canada asserted that the government's action was a result of "myths" and "fear mongering" perpetrated by opponents.  MADD did win one important victory in its new war on drinkers under 21; the government...

Juvenile OVI (Operating a Vehicle After Underage Consumption)

Juvenile BAC Limit is .02 in Ohio O.R.C. 4511.19(B) makes it illegal for persons under 21 years of age to drive a vehicle with a concentration of .02 percent, but less than .08 percent by weight of alcohol by whole blood or breath, or with an equivalent amount by blood serum or plasma or urine.  (1994 S.B. 82, eff. 5/4/94).  In 2004, amended R.C. 4511.19(B) renamed the offense "operating a vehicle after underage consumption" (OVUAC).  In State v.

Ohio has adopted a very low alcohol level for persons under 21.  R.C. 4511.19(B) sets the BAC level at .02 percent but less than .08 percent (by weight of alcohol by whole blood or breath, or with an equivalent amount by blood serum or plasma or urine).  These quasi-zero tolerance levels are justified by the fact that this age group accounts for a "disproportionate share of alcohol-related accidents." See Ohio Driving Under the Influence Law, 2009-2010 ed., Weiler & Weiler, pp. 24-25.  Juveniles who test...

Dayton DUI/OVI Defense for the Juvenile Defendant

Under 21 DUIs (Operating a Vehicle After Underage Consumption) Ohio has declared "WAR" on underage drinking by passing a series of laws designed to present a "zero tolerance" policy toward under 21 DUI/OVI.  If you are under 21 and test over .02% blood alcohol concentration (BAC) you can face penalties including up to 5 years without a driver's license, as well as up to 30 days in jail and a $250 fine.  An underage DUI (called OVUAC, or, "operating after underage consumption") can have consequences on academic/athletic scholarships, college admission, sports eligibility,job opportunities and may present other harsh unintended consequences.  Given...
