What Makes Drunk Driving An ‘Aggravated’ Offense?
Typically, prosecutors in Michigan charge people with aggravated DUI for driving with an unusually high blood alcohol concentration (BAC). If your BAC is more than twice the legal limit (.17 or higher), you may be considered to be “super drunk” and charged with violating the new ” Super Drunk Driving” law.
In most cases, aggravated DUI only applies to first-time offenders. If you already got a DUI conviction on your record within the last seven years, you are likely to be charged as a repeat offender.
Drunk driving charges can also be aggravated by factors other than a high BAC. These include driving drunk with a child in the vehicle, driving without car insurance and driving on a suspended or revoked license.
