What is the blood alcohol percentage in Virginia?

The blood alcohol percentage in Virginia is .08 percent. All drivers with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 percent or higher are driving under the influence (DUI); even if drivers 21 and older are impaired with a BAC lower than . 08%, they also can be convicted of DUI. To put it simply do not drink and drive, don’t assume you are fit to drive even with a low BAC because you can still be convicted of DUI.

Distracted Driving Laws in Virginia

Since 2013 there has been a ban on all cellphone texting, emailing, or other forms of distracted driving statewide. Formerly, texting had been a secondary offense, meaning officers could cite offenders only if they were stopped for a superseding violation such as speeding or running a red light. Now, working a handheld device while driving means a $125 first-offense fine, up from its original amount of $20
