What Are the DUI Charges for Commercial Drivers in Mississippi?

Commercial truck drivers have many standards to meet in order to legally drive a tractor trailer for their work. Since tractor trailers are so large and are usually very heavy from the goods they’re hauling, truck drivers need to be fully trained and vigilant at all times. When truckers break their regulations, like driving too many hours in a row, they could be putting other cars and trucks on the road in danger.

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.
