California has strict policies in clearing a DUI case as soon as possible. Contra Costa, Alameda County and the Bay Area have strong DUI charges that must be addressed quickly. The list below will help you understand what do to in your DUI case.
- California law makes it a crime to drive or operate a vehicle if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) reaches or exceeds .08%.
- A DUI arrest can easily result in jail, fines, and license suspension if you do not act quickly.
- Hiring an experienced Alameda County or Contra Costa DUI lawyer to represent you during the DUI process will greatly increase your chances of winning your case.
- You only have 10 days to file for the first step in the DUI process—a hearing with the California DMV.
