A DUI means "driving under the influence." In Hawaii, this is also referred to as an OVUII (Operating a Vehicle under the Influence of an Intoxicant).
You should be aware that such a charge doesn't just involve alcohol. It could actually involve drugs, or even both. Be sure you're well aware of the facts of why you're being charged with a DUII can help you get to the bottom of them. How a DUI Is Determined A DUI is issued based on two factors: the police must determine if you're indeed intoxicated, and then they must determine how intoxicated you are. Often, an officer will simply conduct a field sobriety test to determine intoxication. These tests can include blowing into a breathalyzer to estimate your blood alcohol content (BAC), saying the alphabet backwards, or walking in a straight line. All of these tests serve to determine whether you were intoxicated while driving. You can refuse such tests; however, this often results in an automatic suspension of your driver's license. It's important to record every piece of information you remember about being pulled over by the policethis information may be invaluable when it comes to getting to the bottom of the facts when you initiate your defense. With the Law Offices of Noah D. Fiddler, you will know your rights and you will know what to expect at every stage of your defense. Information about BAC Limits In Hawaii, the BAC limit is 0.08%. If the breathalyzer test indicates that you're above that limit, be prepared for the charge and this piece of evidence to be presented in court. For people under the age of 21, the BAC limit is 0.02% because it is illegal for people younger than 21 to drive while under the influence. Drivers possessing commercial driver's licenses are also are subject to stricter BAC limits. I can help you understand the penalties associated with getting a DUI, serving as your legal advocate and guiding you through your defense.
