Any DUI arrest is a harrowing experience, and many people are unsure how to proceed afterward. If you have been arrested for driving while under the influence, you face legal consequences that could affect your life for years to come. Because you are facing possible jail time and fines, it is of the utmost importance that you consult an accomplished Vestavia Hills DUI lawyer to ensure that your case is handled properly. Alabama law prohibits any person under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or impairing substance, or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and such substance to a degree which renders him or her incapable of safely driving, from operating an automobile. It is also illegal to be in actual physical control of a vehicle while your blood alcohol concentration, or BAC, is .08 percent or higher. Many factors affect your BAC, including: the number of alcoholic drinks consumed, the alcoholic concentration of those drinks, your weight, and the time interval between the first and last drink consumed. Even if your BAC is under the legal limit, it is important to understand that you can still be convicted of driving while under the influence.
The Code of Alabama also prohibits drivers from operating a commercial vehicle with a BAC of .04 percent or higher, and drivers of day care vehicles and school buses cannot legally drive with a BAC of over .02 percent. Additionally, those under the age of 21 violate the law if they have a BAC of .02 percent or higher and are driving or are in physical control of a car.
