DUI Violations

In 2013, nearly 6,700 accidents on Tennessee roads were caused by alcohol-impaired drivers. If a test reveals that your blood-alcohol concentration is 0.08 or higher, you will be charged with a DUI. A DUI conviction brings many potential penalties, depending on the number of offenses you have committed. A first-time offender might face jail time, license revocation, fines and restitution, a treatment program and use of an ignition interlock device. Subsequent convictions increase all these penalties, and if you offend a fourth time, your vehicle can be seized and your license revoked for eight years. Educate yourself on DUI laws and drive responsibly to avoid making a mistake.
