1. The defendant’s blood alchohol content is .15 or higher
2. The defendant is accompanied by a person under 18 years old
3. A traffic accident for which notice to law enforcement is required under T.C.A 55-10-107
4. The person is in violation of the implied consent law and has a prior conviction or juvenile adjudication for implied consent, driving while impaired under 21, open container law, or reckless driving where DUI was the original charged offense.
