Washington DUI Overview
In Washington, it is illegal to drive a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Conviction of a DUI can happen when you are in control of a vehicle and your “ability to drive a motor vehicle is lessened in any appreciable degree” by drugs or alcohol, you have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or greater, or you have a concentration of five nanograms or more of THC per milliliter of blood. DUIs can result in severe consequences, including jail time.
It’s considered a first offense if there are no prior DUI convictions within the past seven years. Depending on the severity of the offense, it could result in driver’s license suspension for 90 days, up to 364 days in jail, and/or a fine of $990.50.
It’s considered a second offense if there is a prior DUI conviction within the past seven years. A second offense has the potential of resulting in driver’s license suspension for two years, up to 364 days in jail, and/or a fine of $1,245.50.
It’s considered a third offense if there are two prior DUI convictions within the past seven years. A third offense has the potential of resulting in driver’s license suspension for three years, up to 364 days in jail, and/or a fine of $2,095.50.
