FAQ #13: What is the Blood Alcohol Level in California?

The legal blood-alcohol level in California, if you are a driver that's over 21, is a .08%. That means if you are driving with a .08% blood-alcohol level or greater, you can be arrested for a DUI offense. DUI's are one of the most serious misdemeanors.

Every criminal offense is, of course, serious but a DUI has far-reaching implications for your life. It can affect your work and it will definitely affect your insurance. It can also affect your ability to be hired later in life.

These are all things that can be controlled to some extent and possibly prevented with a lawyer. Which is why you should contact one immediately. And with the right lawyer, you can also cut through a lot of your confusion and panic. That's why you should reach out to a lawyer who is accomplished in that area of practice.
