Vista DUI Defense Lawyer

Working to Prevent Driving Penalties in DUI Cases

As someone who has a job or a family to support, how would you react if you had your driving privileges taken away or had to breathe into a machine just to get your car to start in the morning? For people convicted of driving under the influence, this is something that can become reality. From driver’s license suspension to ignition interlock device installation, there are several driving penalties that you can face if you’re convicted of criminal DUI charges. If you want to have a chance of beating the charges, it’s a great idea to speak with a Vista DUI defense lawyer as soon as possible after your arrest. An experienced attorney would be an asset during this difficult time in your life.

Driver’s License Suspension

One of the most common penalties for DUI is the suspension of your driver’s license. The period of suspension depends on the number of DUI convictions on your record, so suspension can range anywhere from 6 months to 3 or more years. Not having your license can make life difficult, especially if you’re a parent with children who need to be driven to activities or a single person with a job who doesn’t have a spouse or significant other who can drive you while your license is suspended. If you hire a Vista DUI defense lawyer, you’ll work together to present your defense in court and try to win your case so that suspension does not become reality for you.

Vehicle Impoundment

In severe cases where you have accrued many DUI convictions in a specific time period, your vehicle may even be impounded. This means you won’t have any access to your vehicle, and if your family only has that one vehicle, you’ll have no method of convenient and reliable transportation available. This is especially difficult because it can strain family relationships and make it difficult to maintain a regular source of income. If you’d like to win your case and avoid conviction, work with a lawyer to give yourself the best chance of success.

Ignition Interlock Device (IID)

The court may also require you to have an IID installed in your vehicle. This means that you would have to breathe into a device installed in your car each time you wanted to drive somewhere. If the device detects any amount of alcohol in the breath sample, it prevents the car from starting. If you want to avoid this penalty, it’s in your best interest to work with a Vista DUI attorney so you can win your case.
