Missouri Drunk Driving Laws

In Missouri, as in most other states, driving with a blood alcohol content of .08% or higher is a criminal offense. On the first offense for Driving While Intoxicated, or DWI, a driver can lose his or her license for 90 days. Driving with just a level of .04% is also a violation that will result in 2 points being assessed and the driver being banned from commercial operations for one year. Minors can also be punished for having blood alcohol levels of just .02%. On the second offense a driver will usually lose his or her license for a year, and if the second offense is within five years of the first offense that can result in a five-year suspension. A third offense will usually result in a driving ban lasting ten years.

The Cleveland Clinic has a handy blood alcohol content calculator that can help folks think about when they will become impaired. As one example, a 220-pound person that drinks six 12-ounce beers with 5% alcohol content in two hours would have a blood-alcohol level of .09%. On the other hand, a 150-pound person could drink only four beers before hitting .09%. Just three beers for the 150-pound person will put him or her over the .04% limit, as will four beers for the 220 pounder. Refusing to take a test will not protect a drunk driver, as that can result in a loss of driving privileges for one year.

Missouri Drugged Driving Laws

The law in Missouri, Statute Section 577.001(14), defines intoxication as being under the influence of alcohol or drugs. So driving under the influence of drugs is just as illegal as driving drunk. As a practical matter, though, it is a little harder for the police to test for impairment caused by drugs. Under Missouri Statute Section 577.020 anyone driving on the public highways of the state is deemed to have given consent to a breath, blood, saliva, or urine test for drugs anytime they are involved in a serious accident. This evidence can become invaluable in a lawsuit filed by someone that was injured by a driver that was impaired by drugs or alcohol.

What Should I Do If I Was Hit By an Impaired Truck Driver?

If you were injured by a drunk driver, you may not care that much about seeing that the driver is punished.
