California Vehicle Codes 23152(a) and 23152(b)

Orange County DUI lawyerCan you be arrested for DUI in California if you’re at your own home? The fact is, if a police officer sees you driving and suspects that you are impaired, it doesn’t matter where you are. Let’s say you’ve been with friends and you’ve had several drinks. It’s only a short drive home, and you think you can make it – you have before. But if a police officer sees you driving and believes that you are intoxicated, you may be arrested for DUI in your own driveway or even your garage. If you drive a motor vehicle in California and your blood alcohol content (BAC) level measures 0.08 percent or higher, you can be arrested and charged with DUI.

If you’re accused of DUI in Orange County or elsewhere in southern California under California Vehicle Codes 23152(a) and 23152(b), contact an experienced Orange County DUI lawyer immediately. It doesn’t matter if you’re arrested at your own residence or in some other part of the state. A DUI conviction in California has substantial long-term ramifications – even if the conviction is for a first offense without property damage or injuries. Never plead guilty to a DUI charge. Instead, dispute the charge, and let a good Orange County DUI lawyer fight for justice on your behalf.

Of course, the best way to avoid being charged with DUI is to avoid drinking before you drive. If you choose to enjoy a few drinks – even if you feel fine at the end of a night – call a taxi or have a designated driver. If law enforcement officers stop you at your own home, politely refuse to answer any questions and insist on your right to have an attorney present during questioning. If you’re arrested, don’t wait. Make the call to an experienced Orange County DUI lawyer as quickly as possible.
