Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) Limits
Under California law, when you apply for a driver’s license you automatically
consent to field sobriety and chemical tests in order to judge your level
of impairment. Because of this “implied consent” law it is
important that you understand what penalties you might be facing depending
on your BAC percentage at the time you are pulled over.
California BAC limits:
- 0.08% - “per se” BAC limit
- 0.02% - zero tolerance (underage) BAC limit
- 0.16% - enhanced penalty (aggravated) BAC limit
If you refuse to take a breathalyzer test in the state of California, you
can be facing a citation. However, if you then consent to a blood test
you may be exempt from this charge. Call our Rancho Cucamonga DUI lawyer
to discuss your charges today.
DUI Reduction in California
