California’s Lookback Period for DUI Offenders: What You Need to Know

Being arrested for DUI is never an easy experience. When an arrest comes after a previous DUI conviction, the stakes can be incredibly high.

Because a conviction for a second, third, or fourth DUI is ... Read More »

Although ignition interlock devices have been used increasingly by law enforcement as a requirement for convicted DUI offenders, not every California offender is required to have them installed in their vehicles.

Can a Person Be Arrested for DUI if Caught Driving While Under the Influence of Marijuana?

According to California Vehicle Code 23152(e) VC, it is against the law for any person to drive while under the influence of marijuana. However, because it is much more difficult to determine impairment by the amount of THC in a person’s bloodstream than it is to determine impairment by the amount of alcohol in a person’s body, it can be difficult for law enforcement officers to prove a person was actually impaired by marijuana while driving. Before a person is ... Read More »

Unfortunately, some revelers also get stopped or arrested by law enforcement under suspicion of driving under the influence. As a drinking holiday, St. Patrick’s Day records more DUI ... Read More »
