Zero tolerance laws make it illegal for individuals under the age of 21 to drive with any trace of alcohol in their system. It's a strict policy but for a good reason. These laws are designed to discourage underage drinking and subsequently reduce the occurrence of underage DUIs. The goal is to protect young drivers, their passengers, and everyone on the road.

We at John M Lane Law fully support these laws because they have been effective in saving lives. Studies have shown that states with zero tolerance policies have seen a significant drop in fatal crashes involving underage drivers. This isn't the time for leniency; this is a matter of safety and wellbeing.
