Santa Clarita Underage DUI Lawyer

Zero Tolerance Law

Under the state's "Zero Tolerance Law," those individuals under the age of 21 are strictly prohibited from consuming any amount of alcohol and getting behind the wheel of a vehicle.  With a blood alcohol level of anything above .01%, an underage driver will most likely be charged with DUI.  In some cases, those underage drivers with a BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration) above .05% may be charged with both an underage DUI and a regular DUI. 

Having just 12 ounces of beer or 4 ounces of wine or 1.25 ounces of liquor often puts an underage individual above a BAC of .01%.  Drivers under the age of 18 who are convicted of DUI will either lose their license for a year or until their 18 th birthday, whichever is further away, among many other consequences.

Penalties of an Underage DUI Conviction in Santa Clarita

Besides having their license confiscated, an individual convicted of underage DUI may have their vehicle repossessed, pay fines up to a several thousand dollars, attend driving safety and alcohol abuse classes and must submit proof of financial responsibility in order to regain his or her license after the suspension. 

In addition to all of the legal penalties of an underage DUI conviction in Santa Clarita, an individual will suffer serious social and professional repercussions later on in life.  A DUI conviction may stain individual's criminal record and prevent him or her from applying to jobs or colleges in the future.
