Drunk driving is one of the most dangerous things you can ever do. And unfortunately, countless Tennesseans do it every year without fully recognizing the dangers of their actions. Studies show that drunk drivers get behind the wheel while intoxicated as many as 80 times before their first DUI arrest.

But many of those drivers wouldn’t consider themselves to be “drunk,” even though police officers would disagree. That’s because what’s considered “buzzed” for many drivers is actually full-on DRUNK—at least in the eyes of the law. Anyone with a blood alcohol content that’s 0.08% or above is considered drunk and can be arrested and charged with DUI if they get pulled over.

For most adults, that’s between two to three alcoholic beverages, including beer, wine, or mixed drink. In some cases, it can be even less, especially when pours are generous or drinks are mixed stronger than expected. That means going out to dinner and having a few drinks and then driving home can put you at risk of a DUI, and for good reason. You may be more intoxicated than you think and a serious risk to yourself and others on the road.

To stay safe, simply don’t drink anytime you expect to drive or may even need to drive. You can also appoint a designated driver, use public transportation, or schedule a rideshare driver to pick you up and drop you off at home at the end of the night.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville car accident lawyers work hard to protect injured drivers and their passengers, especially when they’re hurt by drunk and impaired motorists. Contact us today if you were hurt in a crash with a drunk driver.

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
