DUI/Drunk Driving

It’s not always illegal to drink and drive. It illegal to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs or drive with a blood-alcohol-level of .08% or higher.Driving Under the Influence/Drunk Driving Field sobriety tests have become an object of pop culture. It’s an article of faith that such tests tell the difference between who is intoxicated and who is not. In truth, such tests can be highly subjective and inaccurate. Even breath tests and blood tests can be unreliable as a true measure of a person’s blood alcohol level when driving.
