Under Alabama's Zero Tolerance laws, if you are under the age of 21, a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .02% or higher will lead to charges of underage DUI. This limit is considerably lower than the legal limit for adult drivers, which is .08%.

Underage DUI penalties in North Alabama can include:

  • Fines up to $2,100
  • Automatic 30-day Alabama driver's license suspension
  • A DUI or substance abuse program

Underage DUI Complications in Alabama

For an individual under the age of 21 in Alabama, it is not only illegal to drink and drive - it is illegal to drink. Along with DUI, there may be other charges filed, including:

  • Minor in possession
  • Soliciting alcohol
  • Possession of false identification (if a fake ID was used to buy alcohol)
  • Distributing alcohol to other minors (if other minors in the vehicle were also drinking)

With the DUI conviction of a minor, your auto insurance company could cancel your policy or decline to renew. If your policy is not cancelled, your rates can increase by $200 to $300 a month for a high-risk policy, which will last approximately 3 years time. A DUI conviction will show on your criminal record, which can affect your eligibility for various opportunities in the future, including employment and the ability to obtain acceptance into certain colleges.
