Summer Time Equals DUI Time

Posted by Courtney Pilchman | Jun 28, 2008 | 0 Comments

Now that we have officially have entered summer, police officers all over Orange County, especially Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach and Irvine are on the prowl for people driving under the influence of alcohol. Remember, it is not illegal to consume an amount of alcohol and drive but it is unlawful to operate a motor vehicle while intoxicated.

Vehicle Code Section 23152(a) says it is unlawful to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence. Under the influence can be alcohol, drugs or prescription drugs.

Vehicle Code Section 23152(b) says it is unlawful to operate a motor vehicle if you blood alcohol level is .08 or above.

Orange County is tough on crime, especially multiple DUI offenders. Remember, to always drink responsibly and always have a designated driver if you don't. If you have had DUI within the last ten years and are involved in an auto related DUI accident, you could be charged with serious felonies and face possible prison time.
