Although studies probing the effects of child abuse have increased in recent years, researchers still are confronted with broad gaps in information.

Impaired Driving BAC Levels in Wisconsin
In Wisconsin, the term OWI
(operating a vehicle while intoxicated) is the same as a DUI (driving under the influence). Blood Alcohol Levels (BAC levels) which can result in arrest and other penalties can vary on a few factors such as age and circumstances. If you are under 21 years of age, the legal drinking age in the state, the level is .02%. If you are 21 or older, the level is the standard .08%, unless you are a commercial driver where the level is much lower at .04%. If you are pulled over and refuse to take a test to determine BAC level, there are severe penalties which law enforcement officials will enforce as follows: 1st offense - 1 year license revocation, 2nd offense - 2 year license revocation, 3rd offense - 2 year license revocation. This may also include jail time.
If found guilty of having too high of a BAC level, OWI, you can be fined up to $1,100 depending on how many OWI offenses you have, serve jail time and/or have your license suspended or revoked. You may also have your vehicle immobilized or be forced to have an ignition interlock device installed.
