The difference between an alcohol DUI and a drug DUI often comes down to how the law defines impairment by each substance. For alcohol, the legal limit is pretty straightforward a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher is over the line. However, with drugs whether they're prescription, over-the-counter, or illegal substances things are less black and white. Here's where interpreting the law can get tricky, and where Hyde Law PLLC can be your guiding star.

In the realm of drug DUIs, often there's no universal "legal limit" like there is for alcohol. Any amount that significantly impairs your driving could lead to a DUI charge. And let's not forget about legal prescriptions! Even if a doctor handed you that medication, if it affects your driving, it could result in a DUI. Trust Hyde Law PLLC to expertly navigate these murky waters and help clarify your legal standing.

Did you know that officers use different tests to determine whether a driver is impaired by alcohol or drugs? That's right! In the case of alcohol, field sobriety tests and Breathalyzers are the go-to tools. These tests can be pretty standard and are designed to measure your BAC on the spot. But for suspected drug use? It's a whole new ball game.

When drugs are the suspected source of impairment, officers might rely more heavily on their observations and may request a blood or urine test to confirm presence in one's system.

A crucial part of our role at Hyde Law PLLC is to make sure folks understand their rights during a DUI stop. Did you know you can refuse certain tests? It's true, but that choice comes with its own set of consequences. Knowledge is power, and we're here to charge you up with the info you need.
