Representation for Underage DUI Arrests

Texas Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) Limit
The laws in Texas and throughout the United States are intended to prevent minors from drinking, and especially from driving after they are intoxicated. Even if an underage driver does not appear impaired, they can be charged with DUI. In most DUI arrests, there must be a BAC of 0.08% or higher - with underage DUI charges, you cannot have any detectable amount of alcohol in your system or else you are subject to arrest.
