Ocean Springs DUI Lawyer
ARE YOU ACCUSED OF DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE?
It is against the law in Mississippi to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or any other substance that impairs one’s ability to drive (such as drugs). This offense is referred to as driving under the influence, or DUI. A person is considered to have committed a DUI offense if his or her blood alcohol concentration, or BAC, of 0.08% or higher. It is important to note, however, that a person with a BAC level that is below the legal limit can still be arrested for alleged DUI if it is believed that he or she is impaired while driving. Certain types of drivers have lower BAC thresholds under the law—drivers of commercial vehicles have a limit of 0.04%, and drivers under the age of 21 have a limit of 0.02%.
