Restrictions on going to certain places like malls/schools/restaurants may be enforced during probation for certain crimes like sexual abuse, child sexual abuse etc
If given probation,  you may be precluded from moving out of the county

Woodland Hills & Chatsworth DUI Attorney – CA Drunk Driving Laws

California DUI (Driving Under the Influence) laws fall under Vehicle Code sections 23152 (a) and (b). These statutes are severe and strictly enforced throughout the state.

Though it’s a common practice for many law firms across the country to offer free consultations, it would be helpful to select a lawyer from a firm like ours who has proven experience and success rate in dealing with DUI cases in California. The laws are subject to change and procedures differ from county to county and court to court.

DUI/DWI Terms 

DUI refers to Driving Under the Influence  (used interchangeably when alcohol or drugs are used.), DWI means Driving While Intoxicated or Drunk Driving, and  DUID refers specifically to Driving Under the Influence of Drugs.

Some important areas where DUI (alcohol) and DUID differ could be that in DUID:

  • Sobriety test or roadside check led by a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE)
  • No benchmark number as in blood alcohol content test (0.8% maximum)
  • More difficult for a prosecutor to absolutely prove DUID as compared to DUI (alcohol)

Understand the Drunk Driving DMV Hearings

The Department of Motor Vehicles holds its own hearings apart from the court hearings in DUI cases. The proceedings and protocols for both are quite different. The DMV hearing is presided over by an official from the DMV, while the DUI cases go through regular prosecution and trial if negotiations fail.

As an experienced Woodland Hills attorney with decades of experience, we can represent you in both. Evidence and information from DMV hearings can be used at trial. Winning at DMV hearings means retaining your driving privileges and also helps you get a better deal in plea bargains for your DUI case.
