In Los Angeles DUI crimes are charged under the California Vehicle Code Section 23152(a) and 23152(b). The first section, 23152(a), is enforced very strongly by the police and prosecutors. If you are stopped by the police for driving under the influence in the Los Angeles then you can be charged with this crime. The police will claim that you weaved in traffic, were speeding, or violated some other traffic law. The police will then ask you to step out of the vehicle to determine if you have alcohol or drugs in your system.
If you are arrested for having a blood alcohol level in excess of .08% in violation of California Vehicle Code Section 23152(b), then the police will charge you with this crime. In order to prove that the driver's blood was above the legal limit, the police will conduct a chemical test. The chemical test will be either a Los Angeles DUI blood test or a Los Angeles DUI breathe test.
In some cases after a person is arrested for a Los Angeles DUI, the driver will refuse to give a chemical test. That is called a DUI refusal and the result will be very harsh. A DUI refusal will result in the DMV suspending their driver's license for a minimum of one year. Therefore, it is very important if a person is arrested or charged with a DUI in Los Angeles to hire a top notch Los Angeles DUI Defense Lawyer.
