Operating a Commercial Vehicle
If you are operating a commercial vehicle you are held to a higher standard. You can be arrested for a DUI if you are driving with a .04% Blood Alcohol Level while operating a commercial vehicle. This is due to the special nature of the commercial vehicle operation. If you are found to be driving under the influence or with a blood alcohol level of .04% or greater while operating a commercial vehicle you will face a one year suspension of your commercial license. On a second or subsequent offense, you will face a lifetime revocation of your commercial driving privileges.
