Labor Day blues: Avoid a DUI with these tips

You are heading out to a barbecue for Labor Day, and you can't wait to spend the afternoon with the people you care about. You know that alcohol is going to be a big part of the festivities, and you're all right with that. You like to drink, so what could be better than enjoying yourself with a few drinks surrounded by people you love?

Out of state? You can still get a DUI

South Carolina, like other states, prohibits people from driving when they are impaired by alcohol. South Carolina's blood alcohol content limit is .08%, which means that anyone at or over that limit can be charged with a DUI. If you are under the limit, you may still face a DUI if you fail the roadside sobriety tests or if there is other evidence of intoxication or impairment.

Sobriety tests aren't always right: Here's why

If you're stopped by the authorities, they may state that they want you to take a field sobriety test, especially if you take a Breathalyzer test and have a blood alcohol content that is close to .08%. The goal of field sobriety testing is to see if you're impaired or able to drive safely.
