Penalties for Out of State Drivers
When visiting California from another state, being arrested for DUI can be a frightening experience. Not only will you have an unfamiliar court system to deal with, but you may risk being incarcerated far from home. You will still be prosecuted based on the laws of the state of California. You will likely have your license suspended for use in this state, but will find that you will also have your driving privileges suspended in your home state. This can be a confusing and trying time for you. Retaining an experienced Alameda County defense attorney is highly recommended, as you will need legal representation to avoid the stiff penalties that may occur.
Most states across the United States, with the exception of Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Tennessee, are part of what is known as the Drivers License Compact. All member states share driver information regarding DUI arrests, therefore once you are convicted in one state, even if you are from another state you risk losing your license there as well.
