Driving under the influence in Tennessee is a serious offense. Understand the implications, your rights in the hearing process and to legal counsel. Driving under the influence is an offense committed when a driver operates a vehicle after the consumption of alcohol, drugs, or other intoxicants. Increased alcohol levels in the driver's blood lead to diminished mental and motor reactions which, in turn, reduce the driver's ability to control the vehicle. This significantly increases the risk of the driver committing errors of judgment and often results in accidents causing severe injuries and even death.
