Question: What is UBAL in Michigan?
Answer: UBAL is that second part of OWI. UBAL is the per se theory of an OWI charge. It stands for unlawful blood alcohol level. That is a state-specific reference to Michigan’s .08 BAC statutory level. It does not matter if the person’s ability to operate was not affected. If, in fact, they were driving and they were at or above a .08, they may be convicted of UBAL.
