The Indiana Vehicle Code may assist you if you have been cited for a traffic violation. The code consists of Indiana traffic laws including information on accidents and accident reports, traffic control signals, speed limits and slow moving vehicles.
Indiana DUI laws consider those with a blood alcohol level of .08% or higher to be legally drunk. Indiana’s substance abuse laws fall under the Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) umbrella. You can be found guilty of being under the influence of a substance while driving, meaning it affected your ability to drive, or being over the BAC limit. If your blood alcohol level is over .15%, you will face more severe punishment. In Indiana, you do not have a choice to which test (breath, urine or blood) you take. If your blood alcohol concentration is above the legal limit, you will lose your license for up to 180 days. If you refuse a test, the police officer will take your license. If you are found guilty of an OWI, you can lose your driving privileges up to two years, face fines and possible jail time.
