The CHP has informed all news agencies and the general public that Southern California will be the top priority for Los Angeles DUI arrests and enforcement for driving under the influence laws. According to law enforcement, starting tonight, September 4, 2009 at midnight until Monday September 7, 2009 at the same time, will be a high enforcement time for all law enforcement.
Police will be maxing out the number of officers on the roads to either run a Los Angeles DUI check point or pull over those they suspect of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In California, an arrest for a violation of the California Vehicle Code section 23152(a) and 23152(b), can result in the following penalties occurring:
–Loss of driver’s license
–Jail sentence of us to 6 months for a first time Southern California DUI
–Increased insurance bills for several years
–Loss of job
–Strict terms of probation
These are just a few of the punishments that the court and the DMV can impose for a first time DUI. A conviction of a subsequent DUI will result in much more severe consequences and significant jail time.
A Los Angeles DUI defense attorney can make the difference between a Pasadena DUI, and beating the rap and remaining free. In many locations in around SoCal defense attorneys are attempting to protect their clients from the unfair treatment of over zealous cops.
For example, a Pasadena DUI defense attorney can reviews the facts concerning an arrest in the San Gabriel Valley.
A Burbank DUI defense attorney will review the facts of an arrest in the area between San Fernando and the Pasadena area. That is a prime location for driving under the influence arrests in the valley.
However, a Beverly Hills DUI defense attorney will be able to advise his clients on some of the more public arrests made by both the CHP and local police agencies. That is especially important since the paparazzi often hang out at the Beverly Hills courthouse to see the new celebrity DUI suspects.
