You are in a club after work and on a drinking spree with your pals. You’re a little buzzed – but you think you aren’t too drunk to drive. So you hop into your car and hit the road. It’s all going well so far but here comes your worst nightmare – flashing red lights in your rearview mirror. Now, you are just a few minutes away from being busted for driving under the influence (DUI).
Anyone who is driving, in charge of a motor vehicle, or attempting to drive, whether on the road or in a public place, may be required by the police officer to provide a breath test. This test is conducted in order to check whether or not the drivers are under the prescribed limit of alcohol. As per Tennessee law, any driver who has a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.8% or more can be convicted of DUI. Depending on circumstances, the driver might also be required to take a urine or blood test. However, that person won’t be penalized for refusing the blood test if the officer doesn’t have a warrant.
Possible consequences of DUI
As if the struggle and disgrace of a drunken driving conviction aren’t bad enough, a DUI comes with a heavy price tag, too! If you are convicted of a DUI charge in Nashville or anywhere in Tennessee, you might have to deal with:
