DUI Overview

In California if you have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher than it is against the law to operate a motor vehicle. Any person caught driving with a BAC above this percentage is considered legally impaired. The law becomes harsher with both underage motorists and commercial drivers. State law prohibits anyone under the age of 21 from driving with any amount of alcohol in their system (a BAC above 0.00%), while the law for commercial drivers prohibits anyone driving a commercial vehicle with a BAC of 0.04% or higher.

Our state also has an Implied Consent law, which is a legal provision that allows law enforcement officers to administer chemical tests such as blood, breath or urine tests to determine your BAC. If you are suspected of driving under the influence and you refuse to perform these tests, you can expect to be arrested for a DUI.

A conviction for DUI can have long lasting consequences, which include fines, license suspension and even jail sentencing. Assuming you are a first time DUI offender the court may impose a fine, a 4 month suspension and depending on the circumstances can also impose jail time, DUI school, community service and/or having a vehicle ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle.
