To help avoid a California DUI or San Diego drunk driving charge this weekend, lawyers remind that you should always remember to make sure all of the equipment on your vehicle is working correctly before you drive

San Diego County DUI Law Center's Rick Mueller was the attorney who got 2 California DUI charges dismissed this week.

In the first case, a resident of Texas was stopped while driving into a San Diego California DUI checkpoint.  After trying to do some gymnastics and related Field Sobriety Tests, a blood test showing over the California drunk driving legal limit of .08%, his California DUI lawyer investigated the lack of constitutionality of the San Diego Police Department checkpoint location and operation.  The accused is now legally driving once again without a California DUI on his record.

In the second case, a San Diego lifeguard was stopped by the California Highway Patrol for an equipment violation.  Both the hand-held gadget and the big breath test machine registered two results each over the California DUI legal limit of .08%.  The accused allegedly failed to perform the acrobatics to the CHP officer's (subjective) satisfaction.  Thanks to this San Diego DUI attorney, the freed man can again drive lawfully in California without the stigma of a California DUI.

To help avoid a California DUI or San Diego drunk driving charge this weekend, lawyers remind that you should always remember to make sure all of the equipment on your vehicle is working correctly before you drive:

1. Headlights
2. Taillights
3. License plate lights
4. Turn signals
5. Current license plate registration and tabs
6. No unlawful tinted windows
7. Any special vehicle equipment.
