The Ohio Motor Vehicle Code outlines financial responsibility, licensing of motor vehicles and motor vehicle definitions. The code also details Ohio traffic laws concerning prohibited acts on the freeway, traffic control devices, radar detectors and operating a vehicle under the influence or alcohol or drugs (OVI).
Adult drivers with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher will face a driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) charge. In addition to fines and jail time, your license will be confiscated and you will lose your right to drive for 90 days to three years. If you refuse to take BAC test, your license will automatically be suspended for one to five years.
