    A common misconception is that it is illegal to drink and drive. However, it is only illegal in Alabama to drive while you are under the influence. You are only “under the influence ” if you either have a blood-alcohol content of .08 or you are impaired to an extent that you can no longer safely operate your vehicle. You are not guilty of driving under the influence just because you drink then drive your vehicle. The police officer makes a decision that you are impaired. Officers use several tests that law enforcement claims indicate whether you are impaired. If you are unable to perform these tests to the officer’s satisfaction, then you may find yourself arrested and charged with DUI. It is important that you get an attorney that has experience in DUI cases. Bill Lewis Law attorneys have years of experience and have successfully prosecuted and defended cases.
