Is it true that someone can be charged with dui in VA for a BAC of just .048 %?
But, what would it take for a cop to stop a person if the person has a BAC less than .08%?
At least with .08, the person is probably driving erratically (i.e., over the line)
Based on the statute, it looks like it's saying that a BAC < .08 AND a drug is a DUI charge.
But, what if the person only has a BAC of .048 AND "NO" drugs..could they still get a DUI?
