Can you be charged for a DUI when you're under the legal limit?

Why is drunk driving such a big deal?

Drunk driving is nothing to take lightly. You know that it's not safe to get behind the wheel while intoxicated, but you did so anyway.

It is likely that they will be charged with a DUI, but if they have a good defense, they could avoid conviction.
