Driving Under The Influence (DUI) >>

In the state of California, accidents involving a driver under the influence has claimed more lives than murder. There is a very serious and dangerous epidemic going on in California, with more and more people getting arrested for driving under the influence every year.


This is an alarming reality and it is completely avoidable. There is a set blood alcohol level limit that everyone in the entire country must follow and abide by. The set level is at 0.08 is the amount of alcohol a person can have in his or her blood before they can no longer operate a vehicle safely. All of the research done regarding drinking and driving has found that it could only take one drink from some people before they can no longer function properly. Scientists have found that even if you are at the legal limit, you are still 11 times more likely to be involved in a car accident than someone who has not been drinking.


Drinking and driving (DUI) is not worth losing your life or the life of someone else, which is why police have increased the effort of arresting people who are caught driving under the influence. If you are driving under the influence and are pulled over for a minor traffic violation, then you could still be arrested for driving under the influence. If the officer suspects that you have been drinking and are over the legal limit, then he or she will make you go through a sobriety test to see if you are drunk. When the officer arrests you for driving under the influence, he or she will then take you to jail, at which point, you will be taken through the booking process. Getting arrested for a DUI will increase the cost of your car insurance and you will have to pay for a number of other things. It will cost you about $8,500 once you have completed the whole process after the arrest.
