Common Offences Made In San Diego DMV

The San Diego DMV is the ultimate authority when it comes to driver regulations and curbing offences. It imposes certain restrictions and punishments on offenders who are caught under DWI and DUI offences. One must be careful in order to avoid the same. Once you opt for vehicle insurance with any company, you implicitly give your own consent towards having your blood, urine or breath tested if you are ever pulled over and stopped under suspicion of a DUI or driving under influence offence. The San Diego DMV takes immediate steps with regard to suspending your driving license if you refuse to take these tests as it will immediately be an indicator of your guilt.

The officer in charge takes away your license in such a situation and if you are later found guilty of any DUI violation whatsoever. Then, there are severe punishments going up to a certain probation period in jail, stupendously hefty fine amounts and also other restrictions such as participation in certain community programs for DUI over a long span of time and ineligibility with regards to applying for your driving license again.

The blood alcohol concentration or BAC is the key factor here. This BAC or blood alcohol concentration has to be at a level of 0.08 percent or above for you to be found guilty. Your license is taken away as a result. You may apply for a special court hearing via the Department of motor vehicles in San Diego. This request has to be made within a period of ten days at a maximum in order to help lift this order of suspension upon you. It is liable to be imposed on you again if you are found guilty by the court.

The BAC concentration levels are divided into three tiers for violations:

0.08 percent for most drivers as a basic limit

For holders of commercial driving licenses this limit is fixed at 0.04%

For those under any sort of probation for DUI offences, the limit stands at 0.01%

Any suspicion of drug use would have you being tested for urine samples or regulation blood test.

The penalties are pretty stiff and you might have to face any of the following:

A six month jail term

Pay up an assessment fine almost triple that of the normal one

Lose the driving license for a minimum period of six months

Pay fines of anything between $300* to $1000*

Pay an additional charge for re-issuing of your license which is approximately $125*

Hand over a specific proof of responsibility with regard to finances with the department of motor vehicles

Enroll in specific programs for DUI which might last close to a year before you’re done!

Another fact to consider is that DUI offences still hold good for those under heavy medication for any allergies. The motor vehicles department does not make any distinctions between drugs and pills. It is advisable to know all about the medicines you’re taking before taking the driving seat in this case.
