Is Oregon a zero tolerance state?

In Oregon a driver is presumed to be under the influence of alcohol if their blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08% or above.  A driver can be found to be impaired by alcohol (or controlled substances) if their BAC is below a .08 however.  So sometimes the state will prosecute a driver at .06% or .07% even if there is no evidence of drug use.

If a juvenile (person under 21 years of age) is suspected of DUII and is asked to take a breath test the driver will face an implied consent suspension if the driver has any alcohol in their system (.01% or greater).  So, in a way, Oregon is a zero tolerance state for persons under 21 at least for implied consent purposes.
