What Is Considered Drunk Driving in Colorado?

The state of Colorado takes drunk driving very seriously. A driver with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of more than 0.05 percent but less than 0.08 percent when pulled over can be charged with driving while ability impaired (DWAI). If their BAC is 0.08 or more while driving, they can be charged with driving under the influence (DUI). A motorist can also be charged if alcohol has substantially impaired their driving ability, regardless of their BAC, although a conviction requires additional evidence.
