What does Drunk Driving mean?

Drunk driving, which is also called DUI (driving under the influence), is operating a motorized vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. It is illegal in every state to operate a motorized vehicle with a BAC or blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or higher. Drivers may also be arrested if their BAC is under the illegal limit if they are unable to safely operate their vehicle. Behaviors outlined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) which commonly indicate a driver is intoxicated can include: difficulty answering questions, slurred speech, droopy eyes, blood-shot or watery eyes, flushed face, stumbling or the smell of alcohol on the driver's breath.
