Underage DUI

Orange County Under 21 DUI Lawyer

In the state of California, there has been adopted a law to help put an end to underage drinking and driving. Simply known as the Zero Tolerance Law, this piece of legislation follows up on its promise – making the penalties associated with this type of criminal charge to be absolutely ruthlessly. For a driver under the legal drinking age of 21, even the slightest trace of alcohol could have them slapped with relentless criminal penalties. For a first offense, an underage driver will have their license suspended for a year if they have broken any of the follow provisions:

  • Driving with a BAC that is 0.1% or higher;
  • Refusing to take a preliminary alcohol screening test; or
  • Failing to complete the PAS test
