Motorcyclist who drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs put the lives of other motorists at risk, including their own. Under no circumstance should anyone operate a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Since motorcyclists are already at an increased risk of injuries or fatalities, when you factor in alcohol or drugs, it can result in serious repercussions. If a motorcyclist has been convicted of a DUI, he or she will be held responsible in a motorcycle accident.
As a motorcyclist, there is so much to worry about while on the road as it is and adding alcohol or drugs to the mix will only increase the chances of a motorcycle accident. Unfortunately, many people do not consider how serious a DUI offense is and the lives it can potentially cost innocent people on the road.
The following information determines whether or not you will be convicted of a DUI:
– If you are over 21 years of age and your blood alcohol content is 0.08% or higher
– If you are operating a commercial vehicle and your blood alcohol content is 0.04% or higher
– If you or under 21 years of age and your blood alcohol content is 0.01% or higher
