What is DUI Less Safe?
Unlike the state’s per se DUI laws that punish drivers based on their blood alcohol concentration levels, the DUI less safe law can charge drivers within the legal consumption limit if their driving is deemed to be unsafe because of it. The law may also be applied to DUI cases where the user is showing impaired abilities from drugs.
How Is DUI Less Safe Proven?
To be charged with DUI less safe, the arresting officer must be able to prove that the driver was rendered incapable of driving safely due to the quantity of alcohol or drugs in their system. Without sufficient evidence that the driver’s abilities were hindered, a conviction is difficult.

During testing, the officer will be looking for any evidence of impairment caused by intoxication. This could include, balancing issues, not following instructions, and other impairments.
