Hoover is a suburb of Birmingham, Alabama that is located south of the state's biggest city and is named after William H. Hoover. Incorporated in 1967, Hoover has grown from a modest 410 citizens to well over 65,000 residents at the present time. Interstate 65 runs directly through Hoover, which has enabled the city's economic growth and is a big reason why the Riverchase Galleria - one of the largest shopping centers in the southeastern United States - was built in Hoover. The city continues to grow, in part because of its location on the slopes of Shades Mountain and access to the Cahaba River makes the city so enticingly beautiful.
When you have been arrested for driving while under the influence, you face many potentially serious consequences. Once you are charged with a DUI, it is imperative that you contact an experienced Hoover DUI attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights. Alabama law makes it illegal for any person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or impairing substance, or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and such substance, to operate a motor vehicle if they cannot do so safely. Additionally, it is illegal to drive a car while your blood alcohol concentration, or BAC, is .08 percent or higher. Generally, a person's BAC is affected by: the number of alcoholic drinks consumed, the alcoholic concentration of those drinks, the person's weight, and the time interval between the first and last drink consumed. Even if your BAC is lower than the legal limit, state prosecutors can still convict you under Alabama law.
Furthermore, drivers under the age of 21 are in violation of the law if they have a BAC of .02 percent or higher and are in physical control of a car. Additionally, the Code of Alabama makes it illegal to drive a commercial truck with a BAC of .04 percent or higher, and school bus drivers cannot legally operate a bus with a BAC of over .02 percent.
