Understanding Alabama DUI Laws
Under Alabama law, drivers with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or higher are considered to be under the influence of alcohol. For commercial drivers, however, the limit is .04. This means if a commercial driver has a BAC of .04 or higher, he or she can be arrested and charged with DUI.
Penalties for a DUI conviction include:
- Possible jail time
- Increased insurance rates
- Suspension or revocation of commercial driver’s license
Even if you have a DUI conviction in your personal vehicle, it can still affect your commercial license because you must report it to your employer. This can make it difficult to maintain or find employment as a commercial driver after a conviction, so it is important to seek knowledgeable legal help as soon as possible after an arrest. With our Birmingham DUI lawyers at Tidwell Law Group, LLC, you can get thorough representation to seek a positive outcome.
