A Guide to Search Results for "California Vehicle Code"

The search term "California vehicle code" is usually used by people who are looking for information about the specific provisions of sections of the Vehicle Code of the State of California. This is a surprisingly extensive body of laws which regulate all facets of driving in California. In the context of this search tool, people are usually looking for information about the laws concerning drinking and driving -- primarily California Vehicle Code section 23152. Section 23152a of the California Vehicle Code defines the offense of "drunk driving", also known as "DUI" (driving under the influence) or "DWI" (driving while intoxicated). Section 23152b, on the other hand, defines the separate misdemeanor of driving with a blood alcohol level of .08% or greater. In most cases, both offenses will be charged by the prosecution (unless the individual refused to submit to blood alcohol testing); although a defendant can be convicted of both offenses, he can only be punished for one (the penalties, are, however, identical).

There are other sections of the Vehicle Code which apply to related areas, such as "felony DUI", criminal penalties, license suspensions resulting from a DUI, etc.
