What does Aggravating Factors mean?

Aggravating factors are a set of factors that enhance a criminal penalty for drivers who are arrested for a crime. State laws vary, but aggravating factors can generally include: the driver's prior criminal record, the BAC (blood alcohol concentration) of drivers arrested for DUI (driving under the influence of alcohol), whether the driver had an underage passenger in the car, whether the driver was speeding. Depending on the aggravating factors of the arrest, the driver may not be eligible for lower criminal penalties.
