California DUI Laws

There are different types of DUI charges you could face if you were found to be operating a vehicle under the influence.

In accordance with California laws, individuals could be charged with:

  • Per se DUI: If your blood alcohol level is higher than that of the legal limit, you could be charged with a per se DUI. If a blood or breath alcohol test shows you are intoxicated, that will be enough evidence to arrest you and charge you with driving under the influence.
  • Implied consent DUI: When an individual receives their driver’s license, they agree to give sobriety tests to determine intoxication, subject to an arresting officer’s discretion. Denying a chemical or sobriety test while showing signs of intoxication can be enough for an officer to arrest you and charge you with a DUI.
  • Zero tolerance DUI: Individuals under the age of 21 that are found to be operating a vehicle with any amount of alcohol in their system are automatically arrested and charged with a DUI. This includes even small trace amounts of alcohol or any individual showing signs of intoxication during a sobriety test.
  • Aggravated DUI: This type of DUI is considered a more extreme offense. It can be charged to an individual if they are found to be driving erratically, driving with minors present in the vehicle, become involved in a collision, or if their blood alcohol level is extremely high.

Regardless of the charges you may be facing, it is important to know that, with the help of an attorney, it’s possible to fight the charges brought against you.
