Underage DUI Attorney in Beverly Hills

What Are the Zero Tolerance Laws in California?

California imposes a “zero tolerance” policy, and will arrest anyone under the age of 21 if they have been drinking and driving. Because of the high incidence of underage drinkers getting arrested, I, Attorney Jay Jaffe, can step up to the plate and defend you if you are facing charges.

How the Law Views Driving Under the Influence

An underage driver only needs to test 0.01% blood alcohol content (BAC) or below to be charged with driving under the influence. This only equates to only one drink, which supports the zero tolerance policy regulations enacted in the state.

The penalties for underage DUI include:

  • First DUI:
    • 4 days and up to 6 months in jail
    • Fines costing $1400 to $1600
    • License suspension from 30 days to 10 months
  • Second DUI:
    • 10 days and up to 1 year in jail
    • Fines costing $1800 to $2800
    • License suspension for 2 years

The law heavily places substantial penalties on underage drivers because of the high incidence of alcohol-related crashes and fatalities that occur. Not to mention that it is against the law for an underage person to be in possession of alcohol, let alone consume it and get behind the wheel. As a Beverly Hills DUI lawyer, I know how serious the implications of a DUI conviction can be. They can affect your relationships, your finances, your reputation, and your future.
