Penalties for Underage DUI in Riverside
It is an unfortunate reality that even though parents warn their children
against drinking and driving, a teenager will still make bad choices,
sometimes ending in an arrest. Sadly, the impact from a few moments of
poor judgment can be severe and long-lasting. In our state, drivers under
age 21 who have just a 0.01% blood alcohol content (BAC) are guilty of a
DUI and will face
license suspension; if their BAC is 0.01% and they are under age 18, they will lose their
license for a year, or until their 18th birthday. In addition, a judge
can confiscate the driver's vehicle, order driving safety and drunk
driving classes to be completed, insurance rates will dramatically go
up, resulting in the total costs ranging in the thousands of dollars.
A little known consequence is that the offense must be listed on college
applications which could affect admission, and if already in college,
the student may be penalized by the school. With all that is at stake,
you need the services that the firm that the firm can provide with their
15 years of experience.
