What Is An .02 Violation?

If you are under 21 years of age and operating a motor vehicle while having a BAC of between .02 and .08, you are violating Nebraska’s .02 law (sometimes called “zero tolerance”). The penalty for a .02 infraction is 30 days license impoundment and a $100 fine plus court costs.

This conviction remains on your driving record at the Department of Motor Vehicles for three months only, so long as you have no moving traffic violations during that time. However, the conviction is NEVER erased from the police record and will, therefore, be available to future employers doing background checks.
