If you have been drinking and driving with a blood alcohol content level (BAC) of .08 percent or higher in Nebraska, you will be charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI) – a serious crime which carries multiple penalties. For minors and commercial vehicle drivers, the BAC limit required to be charged with DUI is much lower. Minors (those under 21) need only have a BAC level of .02 percent and commercial vehicle drivers need only have a BAC level of .04 percent to be charged with Nebraska DUI.
There are actually two different ways in which a motorist may be charged with DUI in Nebraska. The first way to determine intoxication is through a BAC test. If the BAC reveals a level of .08 percent or higher, the driver is charged with DUI, regardless of whether they exhibit physical signs of impairment or not. The second way is by level of impairment alone, sans BAC level. This is called a common law Nebraska DUI conviction. It considers only whether the driver can be considered impaired by their physical condition, i.e. the way they perform on a field sobriety test or whether or not they were driving erratically.
In addition to the alcohol consumption laws, Nebraska law also prohibits drivers from operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs, such as marijuana or cocaine. If a motorist has consumed any type of controlled substance they will be convicted of DUI.
