Oregon DUI law or more commonly called DUII in Oregon. DUII stands for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants. Oregon’s DUII system is based around the implied consent methodology that most other states conform to. The Oregon DMV describes the implied consent to mean,’by driving a motor vehicle you have implied you will consent to a breath, blood or urine test if a police officer requests you to take such a test. The officer can request you to take a test if the officer has arrested you for DUII. Refusal to take a test is admissible as evidence in court. You will fail a test if your blood alcohol reading is 0.08 percent or more. If you are under 21, you will fail the test if you have any amount of alcohol in your blood. An implied consent suspension is separate from any suspension you may receive as a result of a DUII conviction.”
