Being arrested for a WI DUI is hard enough, but when the police officer hands you the ticket, you realize there are two in your hand. What does that mean? How can there be two tickets? The first ticket is for the DUI, the second ticket means a person is driving with a Prohibited Alcohol Concentration (PAC).
What does Prohibited Alcohol Concentration Mean?
This ticket is for a Wisconsin driver with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) over the legal limit of .08. A driver with a BAC over .08 is considered to have a Prohibited Alcohol Concentration. This is generally found through chemical testing for a WI DUI, either by a blood or breath test.
Other Reasons for Wisconsin PAC tickets
Being under the legal drinking age of 21 and having a BAC of anything over .00 while driving is cause for a PAC ticket. WI drunk drivers with three or more DUI offenses will receive a PAC ticket for having a BAC over .02. Drivers with a Wisconsin Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) will receive a PAC ticket for a BAC over .04, even if it is a first offense.
