North Dakota

North Dakota’s DUI laws prohibit driving or being in actual physical control of a vehicle:
  • + with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or greater (.04% or more if the driver was operating a commercial vehicle), or
  • + while under the influence of any controlled substance, alcohol, or combination thereof.

North Dakota defines “actual physical control” over a vehicle as “real, not hypothetical, bodily restraining or directing influence over, or domination and regulation of, its movements of machinery.” This definition doesn’t require vehicle movement, a running vehicle, or even a conscious driver for a DUI conviction.

A driver is considered “under the influence” if rendered incapable of safely driving by the drugs or alcohol ingested. Any driver with a BAC of .08% or more is considered “per se DUI” and can be convicted regardless of his or her level of impairment. The amount of alcohol needed to reach .08% can differ depending on circumstances such as the person’s gender and body size.
