Understanding the Driving Laws in Ohio
Our Knowledgeable Dayton Criminal Defense Lawyers Explain
We at L. Patrick Mulligan & Associates, LLC believe that being informed is essential to the criminal process. If you have been accused of Operating a Vehicle under the Influence (OVI) or Driving Under the Influence (DUI), it is likely that you are accused of violating Ohio's driving laws. In the state of Ohio, it is illegal to operate a vehicle with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) level of 0.08 or higher.
Here's what else you need to know about Ohio's driving laws:
- The permitted blood alcohol level to operate a motor vehicle for people under 21 is .02.
- Repeat offenders of all ages are punished more severely.
- A fourth OVI conviction in six years is a felony. Ohio recently made it a felony to have five convictions for DUI or OVI in a 20-year period.
