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

Orange County DUI lawyerMichael Kimmel, 40, was arrested in April in Kentucky because the police say he was riding a horse while intoxicated on U.S. Route 23 in Floyd County. In January, Steve Anderson was arrested for operating a Zamboni machine while intoxicated at a high school hockey game in Fargo, North Dakota. Kenneth Welton, 53, was arrested in Garden City, Colorado, last year after allegedly driving drunk from bar to bar in Garden City on a lawnmower. Earlier last year, Jeffrey Rose, 35, of La Quinta was arrested for suspicion of DUI when a passenger fell from his golf cart. People have been charged with DUI for operating mopeds, tractors, ATVs, bicycles, and adult trikes. If you’re charged with DUI in Orange County under California Vehicle Codes 23152(a) and 23152(b) – whether you were riding a horse or driving a big rig – take your case at once to an experienced Orange County DUI lawyer, and get the legal help you’re going to need as quickly as possible.

The law in California provides a broad definition of what’s legally a “vehicle,” so it’s always wiser to give someone else the keys – or the reins. It really doesn’t matter what you’re driving or riding; if the police believe that you are intoxicated, and you’re operating any kind of transportation device – or creature – they’ll charge you with DUI or a related charge. People in California have been charged with DUI for sleeping in a parked car, sitting in a parked car, and even for traveling in a wheelchair.

If you are accused of DUI for any reason in southern California, politely exercise your right to remain silent, and politely insist on your right to have an attorney present during questioning. An experienced Orange County DUI lawyer can fight aggressively for justice on your behalf. If you need legal help for a DUI charge, don’t wait to make the call.
