Oklahoma DUI Arrest crackdown, DUI Under 21

Oklahoma police are cracking down on underage drinking and DUI Under 21's. Fueled with federal grant money, Midwest City Police, Oklahoma County Sheriff's Department, and the Canadian County Sheriff's Department are conducting stings to combat underage dringking and DUI under 21's.

Prom time is generally the time of year that police officials see the most Oklahoma DUI arrests of minors but they are using the grant money to prepare and gear up. In addition to underage stings at establishments that sell alochol, the police agencies are conducting DUI roadblocks. Midwest City, Oklahoma Police conducted a DUI roadblock this last weekend.

Also, local police are monitoring social web sites and talking to school officials and other teenagers to try and locate teen parties and also looking for those violating the social host laws.

Oklahoma DUI under 21 only requires a breath alcohol level of .02 or more so basically any alcohol can cause an illegal reading. Although the authors do not advise anyone under the age of 21 to drink, it is important to realize that only 1 drink can put you over the legal limit. Also, if you have had anything to drink, do not sit in your car and listen to the radio as this can subject to you an Oklahoma APC charge which stands for "actual physical control". An APC in Oklahoma is the same a drunk driving charge or DUI even though you were not drinking and driving.
