California Drunk Driving Defense Attorney news

Six o'clock Friday evening is the official start of the Labor Day weekend and a number of law enforcement agencies will be on the lookout for those who are DUI, drunk driving or driving-under-the-influence.

As part of the state Office of Traffic Safety's weekend crackdown on California drunk drivers, the Sonora Police Department, with an assist from the Jamestown office of the Highway Patrol, will establish a California DUI checkpoint from 8pm until 2am Saturday.

The California DUI theme of the weekend throughout the state; "Over the Limit, Under Arrest." The penalty for a first time DUI offense is approximately $10,000.

California DUI defense lawyers anticipate many California DUI arrests.
