Drunk Driving State Profiles Arkansas
In 2011 there were 196 drinking and driving fatalities in Arkansas. This number represents 35% of the total fatalities in the state that year. In 2008 there were 168 alcohol-impaired motor vehicle fatalities in Arkansas. This number represents 29% of the total fatalities that year. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), "A motor vehicle crash is considered to be alcohol-related if at least one driver or non-occupant (such as a pedestrian or pedalcyclist) involved in the crash is determined to have had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .01 gram per deciliter (g/dL) or higher. Thus, any fatality that occurs in an alcohol-related crash is considered an alcohol-related fatality. The term 'alcohol-related' does not indicate that a crash or fatality was caused by the presence of alcohol."
In Arkansas, if you are old enough to legally drink (21 years old) then you will be charged with DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) if you have .08% BAC (Blood Alcohol Content). For drivers younger than 21, the limit drops to .02% BAC. The BAC limit for commercial drivers is .04% and carries serious consequences, particularly if you are driving a commercial vehicle when you are arrested.
A person’s first DWI in Arkansas results in their license being suspended for six months and/or 180 days for refusing a BAC test. A second DWI within five years of the first will result in the person’s license being suspended for two years. Their third DWI within five years of previous DWI means that their license will be suspended for 30 months.
