Quick Guide to Alabama DUI Laws in Jefferson County

How you can be charged with a DUI in Alabama:

In the state of Alabama, being "under the influence" means that your abilities are impaired due to an intoxicant. If your BAC is .08 or higher, you are considered legally intoxicated. This law does not factor in whether or not you're able to operate a vehicle. This means that if the police find you in a car and you're not operating it, you can still be charged with an Alabama DUI.
