Changes in California DUI Laws

Changes in California DUI Laws

A new California law now requires mandatory ignition interlock devices on motor vehicles owned and operated by motorists convicted of driving on a suspended license due to a previous alcohol-related conviction. Under the new law, a person who is required and fails to install an ignition interlock device is guilty of a criminal misdemeanor.

Driving under the influence is a serious offense in California. It can be prosecuted as a misdemeanor or as a felony in California depending on the nature of the incident, the seriousness of injuries and the driver's level of intoxication. In California, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent or higher. It is also illegal in California to drive under the influence of drugs - whether they are recreational or prescription drugs.

If you are convicted of a first-time DUI offense or you are a repeat offender, it is critical that if you are charged with drunk driving that you contact a skilled and experienced Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer. If you, or someone you know is facing DUI charges, contact Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney Robert M. Bernstein at (310) 477-1480 for a free consultation.
