As Rubidoux, California, continues to transform from a rural area of quarries and dairy farms to an exurb of Riverside, the population continues to grow. With all these people moving into the area, roads have become more congested, and the police presence has become heavier in an effort to keep up with the rise.
While the greater police presence is comforting for Rubidoux citizen safety, the externality is that more people may be pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving, even if they are not intoxicated.
In Rubidoux (and all across California), a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 percent is considered legally drunk. Many people don’t know 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 also 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 (not to mention the thousands of dollars in fines that may also apply).
Being accused of drunk driving not only will have an affect on your driving license, it can also have legal implications and negative affects on your career in Rubidoux and your personal image.
