Louisiana DUI/DWI Laws

HomeDUI-DWI LouisianaLouisiana DUI/DWI Laws

Like in other US states, drink driving is a chargeable criminal offense in Louisiana and if the Blood Alcohol Concentration is 0.08% or more then the individual can be convicted of a DUI/DWI offense. The laws surrounding the DUI/DWI are pretty complicated and stiff.

DUI/DWI statutes of the state

Some of the laws and limits of the state are as follows:

  • Every individual driving a vehicle can be submitted to a chemical test by the enforcement officer. Refusing the test can lead to unpleasant consequences like the suspension of the license.
  • The percent of the BAC will vary with the age and the type of the vehicle driven by the individual like in adults, it is 0.08%, in those below 21 years it is 0.02% and for commercial vehicles it is 0.04%.
