Once you have been cited for drunk driving, the state will initiate two simultaneous, yet separate legal actions against you. The state will start a criminal action in response to the ticket that was issued, and an administrative action will be issued against your driver’s license by the Colorado Department of Revenue. Both actions can result in the suspension of driving privileges, and there may even be additional penalties to consider.
Under Colorado law, you can be charged with Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI) or Driving Under the Influence
(DUI). A DWAI violation results when the offender’s blood alcohol content (BAC) is at least 0.05, but less than 0.08, while a DUI violation results when the offender’s BAC is 0.08 or higher.
