Idaho DUI Laws are strictly enforced and are stringent. The
amount of alcohol in your blood is only one indication that you are
driving under the influence; incidentally, you can be charged with an
Idaho DUI without ever having a drop to drink! If you are
exhibiting impairment and are under the influence of any intoxicating
substance, including illegal and prescription drugs, you will be
charged with DUI.
Your BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) is used in determining a DUI in
relation to the consumption of alcohol:
- Your BAC is .02% or more if you are under 21 years of age
- Your BAC is .04% or more and you are operating a commercial
- Your BAC is .08% or more and you are 21 or older
If your BAC exceeds .20%, more severe penalties will be imposed.
