Probably no one has to tell you that driving drunk is a big mistake in the Centennial State. After all, Colorado has some of the toughest DUI penalties in the country. Even worse, because alcohol causes your reflexes to slow, you may injure yourself or others if you climb behind the wheel with a blood alcohol concentration above Colorado’s 0.08% legal limit.
Anyone facing criminal charges knows how intimidating the justice system can be. If an officer arrests you for driving under the influence, you may plan to plead guilty and try to erase the conviction from your criminal record later. Unfortunately, Colorado law only allows expunctions under limited circumstances.
