California DUI Defense Attorneys
In California, operating a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol or other drugs may result in being charged with drunk driving.
Driving under the influence of alcohol, drunk driving, drinking and driving is commonly referred to as a DUI. In California, the California uniform summons will usually refer to the charge as DUI.
Another type of offense is a DUID. DUID is driving under the influence of drug(s) or a combination of alcohol and drugs. Regardless of whether you have been charged with a DUI or DUID, the penalties are very serious in California.
If you are convicted of drunk driving, the penalties you receive from the court are only the beginning. You stand to lose your job, pay an exorbitant rate for car insurance, lose your ability to drive either completely or have your driving privileges extremely restricted.
The courts have had a lot of pressure put on them lately to not give any kind of break to those charged with an offense where alcohol and driving are involved. These laws apply not only to automobiles, but also to boats and aircraft as well.

The drunk driving statutes in California today call for a variety of standardized tests and scientific test to determine if the person who is charged with a DUI had a blood alcohol content over the legal limit.
The three main factors the courts uses to determine whether a person is guilty of a DUI is the officer’s observations of the accused at the time of offense, field sobriety tests (FSTs) and the intoxilyzer.
The current model is the Intoxilyzer 5000. The Intoxilyzer is used to determine a person blood alcohol content (BAC). Through out the entire United States, a BAC of .08% or higher is deemed to be an illegal if driving.
Drinking while driving is illegal in California. However, it is only illegal to drive after drinking if your BAC is higher than the legal limit.
If you are under the age of 21 and you drink and drive, even a BAC as low as .02% is enough to convict someone of drinking and driving.
The blood-alcohol limit for aircraft pilots is 0.04%, and for commercial drivers 0.04% or 0.05%, depending upon the jurisdiction.
