What are the Louisiana Drunk Driving Laws?

Louisiana laws dictate that drunk drivers may face criminal prosecution. The results of a breath or blood test will determine whether or not prosecutors bring a driving under the influence (DUI) charge against the offending driver.

The Law in Louisiana forbids a person from operating a motor vehicle:

  • with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or greater
  • while under the influence of any controlled substance
  • while under the influence of both alcohol and any legally obtainable drugs, or
  • while under the influence of alcohol

Penalties are enhanced, or get harsher, the higher a driver’s BAC is and if a driver has committed more than one violation.
