In the state of Connecticut, you are considered driving under the influence when:
•Drivers under 21 with a blood alcohol concentration level (BAC) of .02% or higher.
•Any vehicle requiring a commercial driver license with a BAC of .04% or higher.
•All drivers with a BAC of .08% or higher.
Under the implied consent law in Connecticut, by holding a State of Connecticut drivers license, you agree to submit to a chemical test of your blood, breath or urine. Refusing to abide by the implied consent law carries penalties similar to a drunk driving conviction. If it is your first offense, you may be eligible for a diversionary program that can result in no conviction on your criminal record as well as a special permit to drive to your place of work.
