Montana DUI Laws
In general, the state of Montana has divided its laws for DUI related offenses into two categories. “Driving Under the Influence” makes it unlawful for an individual to be in actual physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. “Driving with Excessive Alcohol Concentration” makes it unlawful for an individual to operate a motor vehicle when a person’s alcohol concentration is 0.08 or more. A person found in violation of “Driving Under the Influence” or “Driving with Excessive Alcohol Concentration” may face a sentence as low as a misdemeanor offense, up to a felony offense. Included with the traditional fines and prison time a person receives for violating these types of offenses, other restrictions have been included with the “Driving Under the Influence” and “Driving with Excessive Alcohol Concentration.” Included in these additional punishments are license suspension, forfeiture of the individual’s vehicle, a required ignition interlock device in the individual’s vehicle, and participation in alcohol or drug abuse programs.
