DUI laws in Delaware are similar to most other laws across the country. The Delaware blood alcohol limit is .08, which means just two or three drinks in a short time can cause you to get a DUI.
If you get a DUI in Delaware, you’re subject to a number of penalties, including:
  • Up to six months of jail time
  • Between $500 and $1,500 in fines, not including court costs
  • License suspension of one to two years
Due to the severity of these penalties and the subsequent increase in your car insurance costs, use caution if you plan on going out for a night on the town.
