Colorado DUI Laws

Looking for low Colorado SR22 rates with no filing fee?

Because of the high potential for injury and death resulting from drinking and driving, Colorado DUI laws call for strong penalties for violations. DUI laws outline specifics of driving under the influence of alcohol and illegal or prescription drugs, and the penalties for first and subsequent violations. Many people may feel that they’re capable of driving safely after a drink or two, but it is never completely safe to drive after drinking, smoking marijuana or taking prescription drugs.

As in all states, Colorado DUI laws prohibit driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and outline the consequences. DUI and DWI have the same meaning and effect in many states. But in Colorado, there is a difference between DUI and DWAI. DUI is driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. DWAI stands for driving while ability impaired. The concentration of alcohol in your blood determines whether you will have a DUI or DWAI charge. The blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit in Colorado is 0.08% for drivers over age 21. The BAC limit is 0.02% for drivers under age 21.

Penalties for Violating Colorado DUI Laws

Some penalties outlined in Colorado DUI laws include:

  • The revocation of your driver’s license for at least nine months for a first DUI offense
  • A fine of up to $1,000
  • Up to one year in jail
  • Community service

In addition, the state will apply 8-12 points against your driving record, which increases your insurance premiums whether or not you own a vehicle.

Many standard auto insurance companies will terminate a driver’s policy when they become aware that you have a DUI conviction, which appears on the motor vehicle report. UltraCar Insurance will write a new insurance policy with a solid, reputable company when you have a suspended license for violating Colorado DUI laws.
