More people are charged with driving under the influence than any other crime in Utah. If you are driving and have a blood-alcohol level of .08 or above then you are “driving under the influence”. Utah has very strict laws when it comes to DUI, generally you’re looking at jail time, fines, and/or community service if you are convicted of a DUI in Utah. Not to mention potential loss of employment.
In Utah you automatically lose driving privileges if you are even charged with a DUI. Upon being charged with a DUI the Utah Drivers License Division revokes your driving privileges for at least 120 days, this usually takes place before you even step in a court room. You can request a hearing with the Drivers License Division to contest this suspension, but the burden of proof is so low the Drivers License Division seldom, if ever, waives the suspension.
