Montgomery is the state capital of Alabama and is the second most populous city in the state. The city, which was incorporated in 1819, became the state capital in 1846 and was the first capital city of the Confederate States of America. Montgomery now boasts a population of just over 200,000 residents and is home to a large number of service men and women due to the presence of Maxwell Air Force Base. Citizens of the city enjoy access to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, the Montgomery zoo, and the annual Alabama Shakespeare Festival, among other cultural festivities. The state capital has also been home to many famous residents, including musician Nat King Cole and professional football player Bart Starr.

The Code of Alabama makes it unlawful for any person to drive any vehicle upon any highway, any street, or any public vehicular area within the state while under the influence of an impairing substance. Alcohol, prescription medication, and illegal drugs are all considered to be impairing substances by Alabama's laws. Additionally, it is illegal in this state to drive a car while your blood alcohol concentration, or BAC, is .08 percent or higher. Everyone is affected by alcohol differently, but generally a person's BAC reflects the number of alcoholic drinks consumed, the alcoholic concentration of those drinks, the person's weight, and the time interval between the first drink and the last drink. Even if your BAC is lower than the legal limit, you can still be prosecuted for a DUI.
