It is important to know in California that the .08 legal limit means very little. The effective drinking limit in California is .00. If you have alcohol in your system, and you are driving recklessly, you can be charged and convicted of a “wet and reckless”. This will also have an adverse impact on your driving record and carries serious fines and penalties. So this means if you propose to your significant other and have a glass of champagne when they say yes, you can be arrested and charged. If you had a drink four hours ago and feel perfectly fine, you can be arrested and charged. Be careful because there is a system in place after decades of successful lobbying by interest groups, and that system is not designed to give you the benefit of the doubt. You need a lawyer who will fight for your rights in an environment where you can even be convicted of a DUI when you are asleep in a parked car.
