If your BAC is between .17 and .199 while you are behind the wheel, this is known as an “excessive BAC”. The penalties for a BAC that falls within this range include:
-your BAC limit becomes .02 instead of the standard .08
-requirement of the installation of an ignition interlock device for one year

Additionally, a drunk driving conviction can lead to heavy penalties. Experienced legal counsel can help you avoid the consequences of these charges.
