Head into 2016 Safe and without a San Diego DUI this New Years Eve

New years is here!  Enjoy it with friends and family. Go see Star Wars or the bowl games (which the better games are coming up). But...be safe. First off it is important that you make good judgment if you drink alcohol about your driving. I am also telling people to "Be safe" because police will assume that bad driving, being tired (red and watery eyes) is all clues to intoxication. Many people are arrested to later find out they were nothing close to DUI.

Tis the Season to enjoy and be safe....and not get arrested for a San Diego DUI

Tis the Season!  Enjoy the holiday season with friends and family.  Go see Star Wars for the second time (I am).  But...be safe.  First off it is important that you make good judgment if you drink alcohol about your driving.  I am also telling people to "Be safe" because police will assume that bad driving, being tired (red and watery eyes) is all clues to intoxication.  Many people are arrested to later find out they were nothing close to DUI.

Getting a Riverside or Orange County DUI as a San Diego resident

So many San Diego county residents drive down I-5 in Orange county and I-15 through Temecula.  Some of these people get DUIs in Riverside and Orange counties.  Do they get a San Diego DUI attorney to appear in those counties or do they make multiple trips to those counties to find a local attorney?  

Drivers arrested in Vista North County DUI Checkpoint

Be careful during this holiday season.  The police are on the lookout for drivers who may be impaired.  I have two cases this week where the police arrested these people and took them to jail only later to find out from a blood test weeks later they were not DUI. If you are arrested for San Diego DUI you should call (858) 751-4384 for a free consultation.

What to do when you are arrested for a San Diego DUI?

I receive a lot of inquiries from people who were just released from jail or their loved ones are in jail after a DUI arrest.  The situation usually comes out of the blue and it involves someone who has never been through the process.

People start remembering all the stories about DUIs they got from friends, news, etc.  Some of them are true with most being myths.  People then start googling and get a slew of information, with a lot of the information being too general or conflicting.

When I left the prosecution side of DUIs I spent a lot of time making a website that had true content that could assist people with answering questions.   There is no website out there that has all the answers to DUIs.  Every DUI case is unique and you can "what if" yourself to death.  What I recommend you check out local attorneys who have DUI experience with solid reviews.  You be proactive and begin working on your case.  You have 10 days from the date of arrest to have the attorney to contact the DMV to stay the license suspension and six weeks until your first court date.  You want to be proactive.  Contact our office now for a free consultation at (858) 751-4384.  Below is a little on the San Diego DUI process.

Saturation Patrols and San Diego DUIs

Some people believe police are looking for the smallest reason to pull someone over.....and they are right.  More and more police agencies are devoting officers for the sole purpose of stopping people in certain areas where they believe DUIs are likely to occur.  This is a factor when analyzing a DUI case.  If you were stopped by police and arrested for DUI contact our office for a free consultation at (858) 751-4384.
