Can I Get a DUI If My BAC Is Under .08?

As many people know, a driver can be charged with driving under the influence if their blood alcohol content percentage is 0.08 or higher. The limit is over zero because the effects of alcohol tend to not inhibit the average person until their BAC is around 0.08 percent. But what happens when you’re under the legal limit and get pulled over or get into an accident? You may be surprised to know that motorists with a lower blood alcohol content than the legal limit can be arrested, charged, and convicted if a law enforcement official has the evidence to prove you were too drunk to drive when you were stopped.
