A few things are happening.
His car's impoundment will be a couple hundred bucks.
He's going to be fined huge, probably in the $2k range. Expensive.
Car's impounded, license lost, insurance canceled (probably under his parents).
Insurance is absolutely insane.. like that's probably the worst thing for a 17 year old kid. He won't be able to drive for 4-5 years and when he does drive his insurance will be a huge premium.. its huge.

He'll most likely have to appear in court and plead to keep his license.

On top of that, a court-set fine

And he will have a tough time finding insurance, and it won't be affordable

It's not a DUI offence, he's charged with having alcohol in his system which is not allowed for G-2 holders. Doesn't mean he was drunk

DUI is a criminal offense, penalties include jail, probation, fines... usually 1st offense you lose your license for 90 days automatically (might be a year now, not sure)

I know a guy who was convicted of his 2nd DUI, lost his license for a year and he can't drive again w/o a breathalizer installed in his car

he might not have been drunk but he was still over the legal limit which is considered a DUI.

good. he deserves it. i have zero tolerance for people who drive with any alcohol in their blood... i know too many people who have died or gotten severely injured on bikes or in cars due to inconsiderate cunts like that.

Remember, he's only 17 he doesn't need a car. His parents will just sign a promise to the insurance company that he won't drive the cars and there will be no policy in force for him. 3 years until the convictions get off his record... it is a slap on the wrist aside for the ticket itself.

I don't think he was over the legal limit, he simply had alcohol in his system

I wondered if his insurance company needs to be notified....it wil be in the police file. not neccessary in the insurance if the parents do not notify them...ofcos unless the insurance co check it...he might get away with this....

194 k in an Avalon.. what you would do if this kid is your son????

^^yeah, this isn't a DUI or impaired driving, its a G2 BAC violation. Different charge (it will forsure get dropped).

reason why? Well, if you want the full long winded response, ask george, but basically the metering equipment isn't effective at measuring BAC's under 0.05.

nope, his insurance company won't know until he's convicted (pays the fine). Also doesn't mean the parent's rate will jump as the insurance company doesn't check driver records daily. It'll come up on renewal though.
