Sacramento DUI Defense Attorney
Driving with a blood alcohol percentage equal to or greater than 0.8 or is unlawful in the state of California. Law enforcement will usually conduct a breathalyzer test to confirm that a driver is driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI). This test gauges the percentage of alcohol on the driver's breath. If the shown results are greater than 0.8%, the driver will be charged with DUI and more than likely taken to jail and the driver's vehicle impounded.
