Driving under the influence
What You Need to Know about Driving Under the Influence
In California like en every state in the country, it is illegal to drive a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content of .08% or more. The blood alcohol content or (BAC) can be determined through chemical testing from your blood, breath or urine. California has an implied consent law, which means that if you have a driver’s license, you’ve impliedly consented to submitting to a chemical test if properly asked by police. If you refuse a chemical test, you could face harsher consequences.
Additionally, if a California law enforcement officer suspects a person has driven under the influence and that person is determined to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher, they face a possible jail sentence, large fines, driver's license suspension and other very serious consequences. In fact, a law enforcement officer is required to seize a driver license of a person arrested for DUI. For that reason, it is critical for anyone who has been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, medication or drugs to consult with an experienced attorney who understands the complex maze of California DUI law.
