What Are the DUI Laws in Tennessee?

A person may be charged with a DUI if they are impaired by alcohol or drugs, or have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or greater. 

Potential Penalties Include:

  • Jail time
  • Loss of your driver’s license
  • Increased insurance premiums
  • Steep fines

The possible consequences are even greater if you have past DUI convictions. 

What Happens When You Get a DUI in Tennessee

With so much at stake, these charges need to be taken seriously. Defenses are available, even if your BAC was measured as being over the legal limit to drive. Machines are prone to both mechanical and human error. The police may not have even had the right to make a traffic stop in the first place. You can rest assured that our DUI attorneys in Chattanooga will challenge the evidence against you at every turn while fighting to protect your freedom and your driving privileges.
