    Posted Jul 1st, 2014 By in Criminal Law, DUI With | Comments Off on What To Expect If You Are Arrested For DUI Or DWI In California

    Being pulled over and arrested for a DUI can be an unsettling and scary experience. Even worse, it can hold some serious consequences especially if it is not your first offense. If you are facing a DUI or DWI offense, contact our offices for a legal consultation.

    Per California’s driving under the influence (DUI) laws, it’s illegal to operate a motor vehicle with any of the following blood alcohol content (BAC) percentages:

    • 0.08% or higher―21 years old or older operating a regular passenger vehicle.
    • 0.04% or higher―operating a commercial vehicle.
    • 0.01% or higher―younger than 21 years old.

    The state’s DUI laws include medications, too. You can’t legally drive if you’ve consumed illegal drugs or:

    • Excessive amounts of drugs with alcohol in them (such as cough syrup).
    • Prescription medication.
    • Over-the-counter medication.

    DUI convictions stay on your driving record for 10 years.

    Understand Your DUI Penalties

    Not all DUI penalties or charges are the same. Depending on your age, license type, and any previous convictions, you could face:

    • License suspension.
    • Fines.
    • Jail time or community service.
    • DUI school.
    • Installation of an ignition interlock device (IID).
    • SR-22 filing.
