FAQ's for Drivers in Jackson, TN

driver’s frequently asked question in Jackson

What Is the Minimum Liability Coverage Requirement in Jackson, TN?

Every state requires drivers to have a minimum amount of liability coverage. Tennessee drivers are required to carry liability insurance to pay for damages and injuries inflicted on someone else in an auto accident.

  • $25,000; Bodily injury coverage per person; Maximum payment for serious or permanent injury or death to a single person
  • $50,000; Bodily injury coverage per accident; Maximum payment for serious or permanent injury or death to multiple people
  • $15,000; Property damage per accident; Maximum payment for all damaged property in an accident caused by you

The state requires drivers to carry a minimum of $25,000 of bodily injury liability per person and $50,000 per accident. You’re also required to have $15,000 of property damage liability insurance. These coverages protect you if you’re found at-fault in an accident.

Tennessee is a “fault” state, which means the at-fault driver in a car accident is responsible for paying for damages. This means you should carry as much liability insurance as you can afford to protect yourself should you be found at-fault in an accident.

What Is the Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) limit in Jackson, TN?

It’s illegal to operate a vehicle in Tennessee with the following BAC percentages:

  • .08%+ for 21 years old or older
  • .04%+ for commercial vehicle drivers
  • .02%+ for under 21 years old

Tennessee has a no-tolerance policy regarding underage drinking and driving. If you’re under the age of 21 and register 0.02% or higher BAC, regardless of impairment, you can be convicted of a DUI and have your license revoked for 1 year, plus be fined up to $250 and sentenced to community service.

What are the consequences of being convicted of a DUI?

Many variables affect punishment in the event of a DUI conviction, such as how many prior offenses you have, whether you’ve injured or killed someone, whether you had a minor in the vehicle while driving under the influence, and whether your BAC is at 0.20% or higher.

Even without any of these other circumstances, first-time offenders receive stiff penalties in Tennessee. They face mandatory jail time of at least 48 hours and up to 1 year, license revocation for 1 year, $350 to $1,500 in fines, mandatory participation in a drug and alcohol treatment program, up to several thousand dollars in related fees, and possible installation of an ignition interlock device at their own expense (which can run to $1,000 in a year).
