Just the other day in court, I was in shock when a fellow lawyer asked me what the blood alcohol limit is in Tennessee. Some lawyers think anybody can handle a DUI case without any specialized knowledge. Since I have been defending DUI cases for over 20 years, lawyers routinely ask me some questions. A lawyer handling DUI cases should know the basics.
Under Tennessee's DUI laws, it is illegal to drive a motor vehicle with a blood-alcohol level of .08% or higher. Remember, the blood limit is at the time of driving.
