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 we can provide with our 15 years of experience.
