California DMV DUI Hearing Documents are outlined in DMV Administrative Per Se (APS) Manual, quoted here by San Diego DUI attorneys

A new San Diego DUI Defense Attorney article explaining DMV's outline of documents used at administrative license hearings per California DMV Hearing Officer Driver Safety manual has been released. While the DMV Manual generally refers to initial documents presented at the hearing, DUI limited use issues and document admissibility complicate the outcome of the hearing, San Diego DUI lawyers point out. DMV Manual:

“12.033 Hearing Documents

Documents presented as evidence must be relevant and have a bearing on one or more of the issues. Determine whether the documents are direct evidence or hearsay evidence and establish the proper foundation. Hearsay and direct evidence are always admissible in an administrative hearing. Although admissible, hearsay evidence cannot stand alone to support a finding or prove a fact unless it is an exception to the hearsay rule. See Section 19.115, NATURE OF HEARSAY, in DS Manual Chapter 19, RULES OF EVIDENCE.

Official records, the DS 367 or DS 367M or other approved agency form, is the basic document supporting the suspension or revocation. When a public employee, within the scope of duty, prepares the document, it is admissible as an exception to the hearsay rule and given the same weight as oral testimony (EC §1280). Under the Official Records section, note the report is prepared timely and appears reliable.

If the DS 367 or DS 367M appears to have different sets of handwriting, corrections, crossouts, or whiteouts, the document may not be an exception to the hearsay rule, because it does not appear to be reliable. Therefore, the officer’s testimony may be necessary to support the written statement (EC § 1280).

12.034 Supporting Documents

The DS 367 or DS 367M may mention other supporting documents, such as an arrest report, collision report, supplemental report, etc. Introduce the DS 367 or DS 367M, supporting documents, and any other relevant documents. Mark them as individual exhibits and receive them into evidence.

A synopsis of the supplemental report may be cut and pasted to the OS 367/0S 367M form to provide the probable cause statement and must contain the officer’s original signature and date.

12.035 Driver’s Record

The driver’s record is marked for identification and entered into evidence at all APS hearings. This is especially important when the record reveals a prior APS action or conviction for DUI or DUI reduced to wet reckless driving showing an alcohol disposition code) within ten years of the arrest date. This evidence supports a longer period of suspension or revocation. The hearing officer must state the information regarding the prior on record."

Friday Night DUI Checkpoint in Encinitas San Diego County California at 1300 block of South Coast Highway 101

This weekend's California DUI checkpoint in Encinitas last night trapped 3 DUI drivers, San Diego DUI criminal defense attorneys say. 586 vehicles could not avoid this San Diego California drunk driving checkpoint at the 1300 block of South Coast Highway 101, San Diego DUI lawyers are told. 345 trapped drivers were interrogated by DUI cops without having an attorney present. 13 drivers were instructed to be evaluated for drunk driving in the secondary-inspection area in North Coastal County San Diego, lawyers believe. This free attorney site tracks the San Diego county locations of DUI Checkpoints.

Hand Sanitizer Alcohol and the Rising Blood Alcohol Level Defense in California DUI cases

California DUI attorneys face numerous challenges. Often someone will have a drink shortly before driving. The question is did that alcohol absorb in the system during driving or AFTER driving? It's a legitimate rising blood alcohol level defense. The idea is one could be .07% at time of driving and .09% later at time of test. That means the person was not over the limit at the time of driving, San Diego DUI lawyers insist. The higher the alcohol level of the drink, the easier it is to be at a lower BAC at time of driving and a much higher BAC later. If someone drinks hand sanitizer, that would surely elevate one's BAC in great proportion. 6 teens went to the hospital after drinking hand sanitizer. This stuff is 62% ethyl alcohol, more than a shot of hard liquor. The Southern California hospital treated them for alcohol poisoning but they were chugging the antimicrobial gel. Even YouTube features videos of teens taking this foul germ-killing goo. It is very concentrated. Teens have a long tradition of looking in the medicine cabinet in order get a cheap buzz. A few years ago, teens were chugging cough syrup in order to get at the opiate-like effects of dextromethorphan. Certain mouthwashes contain ethyl alcohol as well. Before pseudoephedrine went behind the pharmacy counter, teens sought it out for a quick high. In California, where the cases were reported, authorities are suggesting parents keep an eye on their sanitizer pumps. If California parents are worried, buy the gel foam because of the difficult of extracting alcohol from gel foam.

Blowing .01% or higher while on California DUI Probation triggers a 1 year suspension, San Diego DUI lawyers warn

Blowing .01% or higher while on California DUI Probation triggers a 1 year suspension. San Diego DUI Attorneys understand how important it is to avoid this. Contact a lawyer who handles DUI & DMV matters in San Diego within 10 days of allegedly violating probation.

This new DMV manual discusses these issues:

It is unlawful pursuant to §23154 VC for any driver, regardless of age, who is on probation for a violation of §23152 or §23153 VC to operate a motor vehicle at anytime with a BAC of 0.01 % or greater as measured by a PAS test or other chemical test. The law enforcement officer will detain the driver and request that the driver take a PAS test to determine the presence of alcohol. A peace officer can request a driver, detained under §23154 VC, to submit to a chemical test of blood or breath when a PAS test is not immediately available.

The law enforcement officer should clearly indicate in the probable cause section of the OS 367, how it was determined, the driver was on DUI probation. If the enforcement officer failed to indicate how it was determined, the missing information may be found on the arrest or supplemental report. If the box is checked to indicate 0.01% or more BAC (DUI Probation) or PAS or Other Chemical Test Refusal - (DUI Probation) and there is no statement from the law enforcement officer regarding DUI Probation, subpoena the officer to provide the information during the hearing.

If DMV does not timely subpoena and no good cause exists, the suspension action should be set aside, San Diego California DUI Lawyers are told.

DMV Actions based on Facts & Issues attorneys contest after a San Diego DUI arrest

California DMV must review San Diego DUI documents to determine what type of suspension action Department of Motor Vehicles will pursue. San Diego DUI Lawyers & DMV Attorneys base their approach upon the type of proceeding the driver is facing.

DMV lists the BAC, over 21, under 21, Refusal and related San Diego DUI or drunk driving license suspension actions in this new Driver Safety Manual. A driver wishing to contest the action must then contact a San Diego DUI / DMV attorney.

Here's a sample of some of the San Diego DUI facts & issues California DMV must determine based on a preponderance of San Diego county DUI agency documentary evidence:

BAC:

• The peace officer had reasonable cause to believe that the person had been driving a motor vehicle in violation of §23136, §23140, §23152, §23153, or §23154 VC

• The person was placed under arrest or if the alleged violation was of §23136 VC or §23154 VC, the person was lawfully detained

• The person was driving a motor vehicle under any of the following circumstances:

~ When the person had a BAC of 0.08% or more.

~ When the person had a BAC of 0.04% or more when operating a vehicle that requires a commercial driver license.

~ When the person was under the age of 21 years and had a BAC of 0.05% or more.

~ When the person was under the age of 21 years and had a BAC of 0.0 1% or greater as measured by a PAS or other chemical test.

~ When the person had a BAC of 0.01 % or more while on DUI probation for a conviction of §23152 or §23153 VC as measured by a PAS or other chemical test.

REFUSAL:

The department sustains the suspension/revocation when a determination in review made under §13353 or §13353.1 VC by a preponderance of the evidence, establishes all of the following facts:

• The peace officer had reasonable cause to believe that the person had been driving a motor vehicle in violation of §23136, §23140, §23152, §23153, or §23154 VC

• The person was placed under arrest or the person was lawfully detained if the alleged violation was for §23136 VC or §23154 Vc.

• That the person refused or failed to complete the chemical test or tests after being requested by a peace officer. (If the driver, under 21 years of age or driving in violation of §23l54 VC, refuses to submit to or complete a PAS test, the officer has the discretion to offer the driver a breath or blood test. This is done at the discretion of the officer.)

The following are examples of refusing to submit to a chemical testes) when a person is arrested/detained for driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.

The driver refuses to submit to or complete:

• a chemical test after being offered the choice of both the breath and blood test.

• the blood test when the breath test is unavailable.

• the breath test when the blood test is unavailable.

• a urine test when both the breath and blood tests are unavailable or the officer suspects drug use.

• a PAS test or other chemical test.

Experienced San Diego DUI attorneys deal with registered nurses and other persons who are disciplined by California State Board. The Nursing Board may or may not take action after a DUI

Experienced San Diego DUI attorneys deal with registered nurses and other persons who are disciplined by California State Board. The Nursing Board may or may not take action after a DUI. It is best to engage a California lawyer experienced with state professional licensing boards after a drunk driving conviction in San Diego or elsewhere. This week the First District Court of Appeals reinstated the California Board of Registered Nursing's disciplinary order against a nurse for a DUI incident unrelated to his job. Anuncio Sulla went to a party in San Francisco 2 and a half years ago. He drove to San Jose but unfortunately collided with the center divider on Highway 101 in San Mateo County. With a .16% BAC, he pled in DUI court and was placed on California DUI probation. Sulla, a licensed California nurse at a Silicon Valley hospital for 5 years, had no record of job misconduct or California discipline. Yet the California nursing board placed him on 3 years probation, indicating California state laws authorize disciplinary action against a nurse who is convicted of a DUI or alcohol-related crime, or who endangers anyone by excessive drinking. Sulla appealed. He prevailed with a ruling from San Francisco California Superior Court Judge Loretta Giorgi, ordering licensed professionals can be disciplined only for conduct that is related to their work or job qualifications. However, the First District Court of Appeals said the California nursing board was acting within its legal authority. There is a "logical relationship between the professional fitness of a registered nurse and the alcohol-related misconduct" that was the basis for Sulla's disciplinary order, said Justice Henry Needham in the 3-0 ruling. Sulla will appeal to the California Supreme Court, said his California lawyer, Adam Slote. The right to practice one's profession has "strong constitutional protection," California attorney Slote said Friday, and should be subject to revocation only for conduct that is "substantially related to the profession." This DUI was not.

Review of Updated California DMV Administrative Hearings Manual by San Diego County DUI Law Center: Overview, Background & Purpose

Welcome to San Diego DUI Law Center's review of updated DMV Administrative Per Se Hearings Manual [Chapter 12] for California DMV Hearing Officers. This is the first of San Diego DUI Attorney Rick Mueller's published articles in a continuing series).

This chapter of the DMV Driver Safety Manual was updated in August, 2011.

Prior to that, DMV was using the Manual published 4/30/96.

Less has changed than many San Diego California Drunk Driving Criminal Defense Lawyers may think.

Any misspellings are those of DMV and not San Diego California DUI Defense Attorney Rick Mueller.

DMV Manual states the OVERVIEW, BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE on the first page ("12-1"):

OVERVIEW

"This chapter provides information on Administrative Per Se (APS) actions imposed on drivers who operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. The procedures provide information regarding hearing issues, the hearing process and completing an APS hearing report.

BACKGROUND

The APS Act became law in July 1990. The legislature enacted the law to provide a fair, accurate, and rapid method of deterring drivers from operating motor vehicles with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) level of 0.08% or more while under the influence of alcohol.

A law was enacted effective January 1, 1994, to impose an action on drivers under 21 years of age, ZERO TOLERANCE FOR DRIVERS UNDER AGE 21, who operate a motor vehicle and have a BAC of 0.01% or greater as measured by a preliminary alcohol screening (PAS) test or other chemical test.

The APS laws were expanded effective January 1, 2007, to include drivers operating commercial motor vehicles who have a BAC of 0.04% or more, as measured by a chemical test. An additional APS law was enacted effective January 1, 2009, imposing an action based on a violation of DUI probation. This prohibits a person on probation for a conviction of §23152 or §23153 VC from operating a motor vehicle .with any measureable (sic) amount of alcohol in his or her blood (0.01 % BAC).

PURPOSE

The purpose of the APS law is to discourage intoxicated persons from driving and reduce the number of victims killed and injured in alcohol related traffic collisions.

The driver is subject to a chemical test, which gives an objective evaluation to determine if a driver is intoxicated. It protects the driver who has alcohol on his/her breath, but has not been drinking excessively. It also helps detect when a physical or mental condition, over which the driver may have no control, gives the appearance of intoxication."

If convicted of San Diego DUI or California Vehicle Code 23152, you can get a restricted license upon proof of enrollment in state alcohol program, insurance company's filing of SR-22 and payment of reissue fees, attorneys say

If convicted of San Diego DUI or California Vehicle Code 23152, you can get a restricted license upon proof of enrollment in state alcohol program, insurance company's filing of SR-22 and payment of reissue fees, San Diego California drunk driving criminal defense attorneys note.

See this San Diego DUI Lawyer article excerpts:

Here's a sample of a few of the San Diego County DUI Law Center's Rick Mueller's clients:

Steve ‎

I had my first encounter with the law when I received a DUI on a military base. My initial reaction was to just take responsibility for my actions and plead guilty since it happened out of state. However, before doing so I decided to Google San Diego DUI Lawyers and found Rick Mueller. After reading all of his positive reviews, I figured he would be very expensive in relation to other lawyers. This was not the case at all. He was very reasonably priced, I never had to travel back to San Diego to appear in court, he answered all of my questions ridiculously fast, and in the end wound up getting me an awesome plea bargain. He made me feel comfortable the entire time and I was able to trust him in defending me. If you receive a DUI in the San Diego area, you should 100% give Rick a call. No need to look at any other option!

BC ‎

Attorney Rick Mueller defended me on a first offense DUI charge with added complexity (accident, high BAC). Rick Mueller is a lawyer in the great American tradition of representing citizens when bad things happen against an at times over zealous justice system. He was at all times – day, night, weekends – available and responsive. Rick’s expertise and attention to detail helped me get the best possible outcome. If you are reading this review you are looking for a lawyer to help with your case. First, you must have a lawyer — don’t even think about defending yourself or have no representation! Rick Mueller is the best in the field. This is probably one of the most important decisions you will make and I hope my experience helps you make it. Look no further, talk to Rick now!

Phil ‎

Rick Mueller is a fantastic DUI lawyer . I was stopped for a routine speeding ticket going 9mph over the speed limit as I was driving through San Diego on my way to New Mexico, driving through the night. The officer asked if I had anything to drink, probably because it was 1:30am. I had previously stopped and had dinner with friends and had a couple of beers with my dinner, but it was several hours earlier. Anyway I was honest and said that I had 2 beers much earlier in the evening. That was enough for him to pull me out of my car and go through the process of arresting me for DUI. My BAC turned out to be .06, less than the legal limit of .08, but this was my 2nd arrest for DUI and I was still on probation for the 1st one. (Unfortunately I deserved the first DUI but had been very careful not to drink and drive since then.) Being on probation I was not allowed to have any measurable amount of alcohol in my system, so they put me in jail for the night. I called my previous lawyer in northern CA and he recommended Rick. I am so glad he did. Rick is very responsive, very efficient, his fee is very reasonable, and he really knows how to defend anyone being arrested for DUI. He was able to negotiate a plea bargain that got the DA to drop the DUI charge in exchange for a reckless driving – alcohol related charge. So, I didn’t have to go to jail, or be put on trash detail, or public work program, or community service, or volunteer work. I didn’t get a 2-year suspension of my driver license that usually happens from a DUI conviction, nor have my Vehicle Impounded or be required to install an Ignition Interlock Device. My fine was less than half of the normal $2539+ DUI fine. I did have to pay a fine and take the 12-hour education class, but considering what could have happened I felt that he got me a great deal. Thanks Rick, for being the best lawyer I could have had.

San Diego California DMV attorney Rick Mueller writes about cutting-edge cut & paste objections in this new San Diego DUI Lawyer

San Diego California DMV attorney Rick Mueller writes about cutting-edge cut & paste objections in this new San Diego DUI Lawyer Article . San Diego DUI lawyers save licenses, unlike the unfortunate California DUI lawyer in Siemen v. Valverde who apparently limited his objection and lost the hearing.

Per that case, the Siemen California attorney did not make the detailed objections contained in this article. That California lawyer did not object to the underlying foundational facts cut, pasted and incorporated from an impossibly dated and defectively prepared California DUI arrest report.

Siemen’s Page 2 of the DMV DS 367 was dated 1 day after Page 1 but admitted (without Glatman & other legal objections timely made by that California DUI attorney).

The Siemen DMV hearing officer reportedly considered Siemen’s sole objection to the admission of the DS-367. According to the limited facts in this California DUI decision, Siemen’s lawyer only asserted that the signature and date on the cut-and-paste alteration to the probable cause section of the DS-367 was June 14, 2009, and the signature on the DS-367 itself was dated June 13, 2009. Siemen’s California DUI attorney understated his objection(s). Siemen’s California DUI lawyer essentially limited his argument to the notion that the California DUI officer did not swear to the probable cause statement, which was not complete when the officer signed the certificate.

The Siemen DMV hearing officer overruled the limited objection. Siemen waived other available objections not made. Once waived, available objections and contentions can not later be made by a California DUI lawyer.

Every California DMV case has its own unique facts, circumstances, documents, hearing officer, and day of the week. A California DUI defense lawyer will want to all applicable objections at the time DMV offers the exhibits as evidence.

A number of competent California DMV attorneys advance specific & detailed objections in writing.

DWD "Driving with Dog" on Lap is more dangerous than DUI or Driving while Texting

San Diego DUI Courts distinguish between Dangerous v. Non-Dangerous DUI cases. Focus on the Driving, San Diego DUI Attorneys say. Was the Driving Bad? Was the Driving Innocent? DUI Lawyers correctly point out the difference of weaving all over the place or getting in an accident vs. having a light out or doing something sober people do all the time, e.g. speed. A DUI is not as dangerous as a dog on the lap or texting while driving if the person does not drive poorly. One in five U.S. drivers with a dog in tow let his or her dog be in the driver's seat. 5% of U.S. drivers who travel with their dog admit playing with Fido WHILE DRIVING. Not that's dangerous. Five percent of American drivers who roll with pup say they play with doggie instead of focusing on the road. DUI can be dangerous but Texting behind the wheel may be the new drunk driving. Now dogs are a target of unsafe driving. Get your dog off your lap if you're driving. It's simple. DWD Driving with an unrestrained dog in the front seat is dangerous enough. Rhode Island and Tennessee are considering DWD laws. A 2010 survey from AAA has some pretty jarring numbers: 21 percent of drivers who transported their dogs in the last year said they let the pooch ride on their lap, 7 percent said they'd fed or given water to the dog while driving, 5 percent admitted to playing with the dog while driving, and 31 percent said that the dog had distracted them, regardless of where it was in the car. An unrestrained 10-pound dog traveling at 50 miles per hour flies forward with 500 pounds of pressure in a crash, and an 80-pound dog at only 30 mph packs a 2,400-pound punch, says AAA spokeswoman Beth Mosher. "Imagine the devastation that can cause to your pet and anyone in the vehicle in its path." It's legal to drive with a dog in your lap for now. No state forbids dogs, cats, or other animals from running around freely inside your vehicle. 2 states are trying to change that. California legislature outlawed dogs in drivers' laps in 2008, but California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed it In Tennessee, a Republican-sponsored bill passed in the House on April 2 and is currently stalled in the Senate. In Rhode Island, a Democrat-backed bill was introduced April 9, and is working its way through the House. "There shouldn't be anything in your lap, whether it be your little pooch or your Great Dane of your wife." Rhode Island dog-driving scofflaws would only get a fine: $85 for the first offense, $100 for a second ticket, and $125 for every violation after that. In Tennessee, driving with a dog in your lap or "between the driver and driver's door" would be a Class C misdemeanor, bringing a $50 fine and up to 30 days in jail. But given the risk of injury or death to the dog and driver, "it is clear logic to me that anyone would want to secure an animal in the car." South Dakota's Supreme Court sided with police who stopped a woman in 2010 with 15 cats running loose in her car, impounding the cats because they posed a risk to public safety. The woman, Patricia Edwards, didn't even see the patrol car behind her because cats were huddled in her rear window.

Roll your vehicle's window down several inches to hand over license, insurance,& California registration and to talk to the San Diego county DUI officer. Those are the only 3 things you're required to give the cop (unless later arrested for a DUI, then you must give a blood or breath test sample).

"Driving" is something which must be proved in every San Diego California DUI case but last night's parked car on I-5 accident has 20 witnesses

CDLA DUI Attorney "Specialists" spot issues in your San Diego DUI case such as "driving" or BAC test admissibility & reliability. California DUI Lawyers Association recognizes "Specialists". Issues involving DRIVING in a San Diego DUI case may begin at this San Diego County DUI Law Center Article. San Diego DMV license suspension procedures and legal applications are different. San Diego lawyers understand administrative per se actions may or may not utilize California criminal cases cited in this San Diego DUI Lawyer Article. Rules and legal tests can be distinguishable as most San Diego DUI attorneys will tell you. California DUI criminal cases should not adversely apply to a civil administrative DMV action. Determinations can only fairly be based on a DMV decisions and standards. DMV should not rely on criminal court standards in civil cases to attempt to make a DMV finding of “driving.” The issue of driving will probably not come into play in last night's drunk driving accident on I-5. 2 San Diego DUI drivers were hospitalized Friday after a guy parked his car in the middle of Interstate 5 near Sea World Drive shortly after 2 a.m, then fell asleep in the front seat. Another car, carrying 2 people, hit the parked car which caused their car to roll. 20 witnesses can ID the drivers and assisting in removing the male and female from the overturned wreckage. The 2 guys were hospitalized; a female in the second vehicle was fortunately not injured. The 2 drivers agreed to a San Diego DUI preliminary alcohol screening breath test at the scene of this drunk driving accident.
