NATIONAL RED RIBBON MONTH:
Colorado Drunk Driving Laws
1.) DUI – Driving while under the influence
2.) DWAI – Driving while ability impaired

BAC at or exceeding .08 = that defendant is under the influence and should not be operating a motor vehicle
Similarly if blood contains 5 nanograms or more of delta-9 THC (Marijuana) per milliliter of blood, the defendant is under the influence and should not be operating a motor vehicle.

The law presumes that every driver has consented to take a blood, breath, saliva, or urine test when requested by law enforcement who has probable cause – refusal is admissible in court and a basis for revocation of a driver's license.

If you are involved in a crash causing death or injury while under the influence, on top of the DUI/DWAI offenses you will be served with other penalties such as vehicular assault or homicide.

There are both criminal and administrative penalties for drunk driving.
