Understanding Indiana DUI Law

Indiana law makes it illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) that is above the legal limit. For most adults, this limit is 0.08. For drivers who are under the age of 21, however, the limit is just 0.02.

Law enforcement officials in Indiana use a variety of different techniques to determine a driver’s BAC. Most officers will start by asking the suspect to take a breathalyzer test. If the breathalyzer shows that the suspect may be intoxicated, the officer will then ask the suspect to take an additional chemical test.

Anyone who drives on a public road in Indiana is considered to have provided consent to perform urine and blood tests. As such, individuals who refuse to take such a chemical test are subject to automatic one-year license suspensions.
