Driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) is considered negligent behavior that puts others at risk unnecessarily. Drunk driving is banned by law in all 50 states. Alabama drunk driving laws define drunk driving as operating a motor vehicle with over .08 percent blood alcohol content for recreational drivers and .04 percent blood alcohol content for most commercial drivers (day care and school bus drivers must not exceed .02 percent blood alcohol content when driving). It is important to take a DUI charge seriously as it has the potential to affect your employment and personal freedom as some convictions result in a suspended drivers license or time spent in jail.
