As the second largest city in Riverside County (by population), Moreno Valley is bustling with life and true California beauty. With busy roadways like the Moreno Valley Freeway, Interstate 215, Alessandro Boulevard, and Perris Boulevard all running through Moreno Valley, the chances of being pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving is not highly improbable.
Moreno Valley drunk driving laws are very severe, even for first-time offenders. If you have been arrested and charge of a DUI in Moreno Valley, it’s important that you contact an experienced DUI attorney to guide you through this challenging time in your life.
In Moreno Valley, and all of California, a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 percent is considered legally drunk. What many people don’t know is that you can also be convicted of a DUI for a lower BAC (based on erratic driving and other observations by the arresting officer).
Intoxication by drugs (illegal narcotics or prescription medications) can result in DUI charges. Underage drivers can be charged for a BAC of .05, and commercial (CDL) drivers at .04 BAC.
A DUI is usually a misdemeanor crime, punishable by jail time, heavy fines and suspension of license. After a fourth offense or a DUI resulting in an injury or death, you could be charged as a felon, with the possibility of a year or more in prison and license revocation. Thousands of dollars in fines may also apply.
Because of the negative connotations that come with it, being accused of drunk driving not only will have an affect on your driving license, it can also have negative affects on your career.
