Presumably you are under age 21 when you are reading this information. Virginia has enacted a zero tolerance policy concerning alcohol consumption if you are younger than 21. The technical blood alcohol level is 0.02 or higher. This contrasts with the 0.08 required to charge those over age 21. Conviction for underage DUI includes a mandatory minimum fine of $500 or performance of at least 50 hours of community service, plus suspension of the privilege to drive for one year.
