This weekend’s Operation Drive Sober Initiative in Milwaukee resulted in the arrest of nine drivers suspected of Wisconsin OWI.
The average preliminary test result was .17 blood alcohol concentration. The legal limit in Wisconsin is 0.08 BAC.
Most of the drivers were first time offendors with a BAC below 0.15% who will be looking at a fine between $150 and $300, a 6-9 month suspension of driving privileges, and most likely, increased insurance costs.
Getting a first DUI in Wisconsin may also include a drug and alcohol assessment and the successful completion of a traffic safety course (DUI class) at the driver’s expense.
Unfortunately, one driver among the group was arrested for DUI-3rd Offense and will be subject to even greater consequences which may include incarceration, hefty fines, and an extended loss of license.
