Uber, Lyft Drivers Face Lower BAC Limit for DUI

Effective July 1, 2018, Uber, Lyft and other ride-share drivers will be subject to a lower legal limit for their blood alcohol content when charged with a DUI. Currently, they are subject to a legal limit of 0.08, the same as other drivers of passenger vehicles. Drivers of trucks and other commercial vehicles are already subject to a much lower alcohol limit – 0.04 – and that limit will now be made applicable to ride-share drivers.
