The BAC and Your License Suspension Evansville Indiana

In Indiana, the arresting officer will require the person arrested for DUI/OWI to take a breath, blood, or urine test to determine the blood alcohol concentration (BAC). The person arrested has no say about which of BAC tests or she will take, and has no right to consult with a DUI lawyer before taking the test. Indiana DUI/OWI laws can be particularly tough on violators for these reasons. If the arresting officer alleges that you refused to submit to a BAC test for any reason whatsoever, your license will automatically be suspended for a minimum of one year. In Vanderburgh county, the newly elected prosecutor has taken the stance that his office will not agree to any suspension less than a year if the driver refused to submit to a BAC test.

Even if you agree to a BAC test and, if the test indicates that your BAC was .08% or greater, your license will be suspended for a minimum of 180 days, unless your lawyer requests a shorter suspension, a minimum of 90 days, or a 180 day probationary license after you have served a minimum suspension of 30 days. The effect of a DUI arrest on your driving privileges is complex, even for lawyers who do not specialize in DUI law. Even if an attorney knows the basic laws concerning your driver’s license suspension, working with the Department of Motor Vehicles and your insurance company comes only with experience.
