The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is an agency that grants drivers their driver’s license so that they can operate their vehicles legally, it is also the agency that can take their license away by suspending or revoking it.
An ignition interlock device (IID) is a breathalyzer test technology used to ensure that repeat DUI offenders cannot drive their car while under the influence of alcohol. They are also used for first-time offenders who want to save their license from being suspended.
Most of the time a car accident does not result in a traffic ticket because there isn’t always a clear breaking of the law behind every single car crash. Sometimes collisions just happen, or there is no apparent evidence of anyone violating the law. But there are times when an officer has enough evidence to write a ticket for a traffic violation that led to an accident.
Driving under the influence impairs your ability to make timely judgments and turns you into a threat on the road. Getting a DUI in the state of California carries very serious consequences. The penalties for a DUI depend on two main factors: whether you have prior DUIs and whether anyone was seriously injured as the result of the accident.
You have far too much to lose if convicted of Driving Under the Influence. Your life as-you-know-it will change drastically: license suspended, car impounded, heavy fines, and possible jail time not to mention the potential work consequences you might face if you work in certain professions.
