The current legal limit for blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08 for adults and .02 for those under 21. The legal limit for marijuana DUIs is 5 nanograms for blood THC content. However, you can still be charged with DUI even if you are below these limits if the King County Prosecution can show that you were “affected” or “impaired” by any amount of alcohol, drugs, or both. You can also be convicted of “physical control of vehicle while intoxicated,” even if you aren’t actually driving the vehicle in Lake Forest Park or King County at the time of your arrest.
WASHINGTON STATE DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING
Driver License Suspension Telephone Hearings Information
(For DUI Cases Only)
Your Department of Licensing DUI driver license suspension case will most likely never be actually heard in King County court. Instead it will be heard completely in a telephone conference call with the assistance of a Department of Licensing (DOL) Hearing officer designated to your DUI license suspension case. This particular DOL telephone hearing will probably be arranged for inside 60 days of your DUI arrest date. The appointed DOL Hearing officer will contact you and your lawyer on your lawyer's business office speaker telephone ... or on your own home or cell phone in case you fail to have a DUI lawyer.
