By | Criminal Defense | No Comments

Utah Legislator Lee Perry has introduced a bill in Utah that would make it illegal to operate a vehicle while impaired to the slightest degree by any substance.

It is illegal to operate or be in actual physical control of a vehicle if the person

  1. Has a blood or breath alcohol concentration of .08 grams or greater at the time of operation or actual physical control;
  2. Has sufficient alcohol in the person’s body that a subsequent chemical test shows that the person has a BAC of .08 grams or greater at the time of the test; OR
  3. Is under the influence of drugs or alcohol to a degree that renders the person incapable of safely operating a vehicle.
