In Tennessee, as with the rest of the U.S., it is unlawful to operate a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 or higher. If you are 21 years old or older and your BAC is at this level or above when you get behind the wheel, you are considered drunk and could face numerous penalties. Tennessee has a zero tolerance policy for underage drinkers. If you are a minor and your BAC is 0.02 or higher, you are considered to be driving under the influence, even if you do not feel drunk.
