Drivers Under 21 Arrested for DUI

Underage Drivers Charged With Drunk Driving

California has strict laws against those driving and drinking when they are under the age of 21.  The "Zero Tolerance Law" allows for any driver under the age of 21 years who has a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .01% or higher will be considered DUI and may lose their license for up to one year.  Although the legal limit for intoxication for adults is .08%, these harsher limits are enforced to ensure underage drinkers are not driving at all.  Underage drivers with .05% or higher BAC can stand to be charged with a misdemeanor.  Such charges are a serious matter for a young adult and must be handled appropriately with the help of an Alameda County DUI defense attorney.  Contacting the Law Office of Nors Davidson can ensure you get the skilled legal defense you will need.

Further penalties can include stiff fines, jail time, proof of financial responsibility once the license is re-instated, enrollment in a DUI alcohol program and possible community service.  This can also lead to higher insurance costs later, as well as difficulties in obtaining certain jobs or student loans.

Contact a DUI Defense Attorney

Our firm will carefully review the facts of your traffic stop, testing and arrest for any potential violations of your rights.  With such a small reading on a BAC, the possibility that an error occurred markedly increases.  If possible, any errors found will be challenged so as to have your charges potentially reduced or dismissed.  With our experience in resolving underage DUI charges, you can feel confident that all efforts will be made to provide you with an effective defense.

If you are under 21 and have been arrested for DUI, get the experienced and skilled legal representation you need.
