Drivers found to be under the influence of certain illegal drugs would also be required to spend from 15 to 20 days in jail, depending on whether the conviction is a first-time offense. It is illegal to drive a personal vehicle with a blood-alcohol concentration of more than 0.08 percent, but for the first time the law will hold commercial drivers to a higher standard. Drivers of commercial vehicles, including taxicabs, limousines, shuttle buses, and 18-wheelers will have to abide by a blood-alcohol limit of 0.04 percent.
Drivers of those vehicles would face minimum jail sentences of five days if convicted of driving with a higher blood-alcohol concentration. Maximum incarceration periods and fines will increase, with first-time offenders facing jail sentences of up to 180 days and fines of up to $1,000. This doesn't have to be you! CALL US!!!
