    R-U-Buzzed? An iPhone App to Help Calculate Your BAC

    Last updated 6 years ago

    On occasions when you know you will be drinking or where alcohol is present, designating a sober driver before anyone starts drinking is a responsible way to help everyone get home safely. But if there is no designated driver or if you need to get yourself home, this iPhone application can help you determine whether or not it's time to call a cab.

    With a BAC (blood alcohol concentration) calculator provided by the Colorado Department of Transportation, this application can help you determine if you are too impaired to drive. Although an individual's BAC will depend on a variety of factors including weight, tolerance, and metabolism, take precaution by checking before you get into the car.

    DUI vs. DWI: What's the Difference?

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Driving is a privilege and serious responsibility, and choosing to drive after drinking can threaten not only your ability to legally drive but also your life and the lives of others on the road. According to the DMV, “half of all traffic deaths in the state of Colorado are still tinged with alcohol.” DUIs and DWAIs are the two traffic offenses based on measurements of blood alcohol concentration (BAC) in Colorado, and both are strict liability crimes.

    The more serious offense of the two, a DUI, which stands for “driving under the influence,” may result in costly consequences to your wallet and freedoms, including jail time. The Colorado BAC limit for a DUI was lowered to .08% in 2004.

    Having a BAC measured between .05% and .07% while driving in Colorado can lead to a DWAI, or charge of “driving while ability impaired.” Explains The Orr Law Firm, a leading DUI defense firm in Denver, “DWAI, like DUI, is a misdemeanor crime and because it is also an alcohol offense, DWAI is a lifelong offense and cannot be expunged nor the record sealed.”

    State laws regarding DUI, DWAI, and drunk driving may vary—the exact charge and consequences may depend on your blood alcohol level, a prior record, or other circumstances. However, regardless of where and with which offense you have been charged, your arrest is very serious. You may have endangered the lives of innocent people or possibly created considerable property damage. Most drunk driving charges carry stiff punishments, including fines, jail time, and revocation of driving privileges.

    What you do in the first seven days after your arrest is critical in protecting your privilege to drive. If you have been charged with a DUI or DWAI in Denver, then you need a DUI lawyer. Contact The Orr Law Firm LLC today to learn more about possible courses of action. The Orr Law Firm, L.L.C. is Colorado’s premier DUI defense law firm and focuses exclusively on DUI and criminal traffic defense. Call us today at (720) 279-9588.

    Former MADD President Charged with Drunk Driving

    Last updated 6 years ago

    In a twist of irony, CBS reports, a former president of the now-defunct Gainesville chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) was arrested in Gainesville, Fla. for drunk driving. Debra Oberlin was pulled over on February 18 at 1:10 a.m. after an officer noticed Oberlin "driving erratically, swerving and crossing lanes."

    The arrest report states that Oberlin, 48, registered a .234 and .239 on breath alcohol tests, levels nearly three times higher than those legally allowed by Florida. The MADD chapter Oberlin headed, says The Gainesville Sun, was finally closed in 1996 due to lack of funding.
