In the state of California, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while impaired by drugs and/or alcohol. It is also illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or higher. If a person drives while impaired by drugs and/or alcohol, or drives with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or higher, he/she can be charged with driving under the influence (DUI) by California law enforcement.
Each year, nearly 200,000 people are arrested for DUI in California. The mistake that many of these people make is taking their DUI charges too lightly. If a person is convicted of DUI, he/she may have to spend time in jail, pay large fines, and attend DUI School. Additionally, people who have been charged with DUI stand to lose their driving privileges. With the consequences being so risky, people cannot afford to take their DUI charges lightly.
Once a person has been charged with DUI, he/she needs to make sure that his/her rights are preserved and that he/she receives direction from a qualified DUI defense attorney. A DUI defense attorney can review the person’s situation and provide the person with valuable legal insight that could positively impact the outcome of the person’s case. If you have been charged with DUI, do not hesitate to seek legal representation from a skilled DUI lawyer.
