A Guide to Search Results for "California DUI Laws"
The search term "California DUI laws" is usually used by people who are looking for information about the California law relating to the criminal offenses known as drunk driving, DUI (driving under the influence) or DWI (driving while intoxicated). The laws in California applicable to "drunk driving" are harsh and extremely complex as to the procedures, evidence, punishment and administrative license suspensions; to make matters worse, normal constitutional protections often do not apply. The offense can consist of driving under the influence of alcohol or a combination of alcohol and drugs, which can be largely established with police opinion testimony, or it can consist of driving with a blood-alcohol concentration of .08% or higher; in most cases, both offenses will be charged. Punishment involves a labyrinth of statutes, requiring jail, fines, schools, license restrictions/suspensions, ignition interlock devices, vehicle forfeiture, probation, etc.; some can involve factual variables triggering so-called "enhancements", which increase the sentence. Separate from the criminal proceedings, the arrestee has the right to demand a hearing to contest the administrative suspension of his or her driver's license.
