Pleasanton, CA – Drivers found with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of +0.08% or under the influence of prescription/over-the-counter drugs are arrested and charged with driving under the influence (DUI). When facing a DUI charge, it’s necessary to understand that a conviction can lead to administrative and criminal penalties such as jail/prison time, community service, vehicle impound, ignition interlock devices, SCRAM bracelets, and hefty fines.
