How to Hire a Virginia DUI Lawyer

It is illegal to drive a car, truck, boat, motorcycle, or any other motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs in Virginia. Driving under the influence (known as DUI) is a crime in Virginia.

In other states, driving under the influence may also be known as driving while intoxicated (DWI), operating under the influence (OUI), or operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI).

Virginia DUI laws limit the amount of alcohol a person can have in his or her bloodstream-known as the blood alcohol content, or BAC-while operating a motor vehicle. The current BAC limit in Virginia is .08 percent, which is the equivalent of .08 g of alcohol per 100 ml of blood. For underage drivers in Virginia, the BAC limit is .02 percent.
