If you are not a resident of San Diego or California, discuss the effect of a DUI on your license with a DUI attorney or San Diego DUI lawyer

If you are not a resident of San Diego or California, discuss the effect of a DUI with your attorney or lawyer. Your driver's license may or may not be suspended.

If it is suspended by San Diego DUI and you go back to your home state, your lawyer will explain there are a number of options.

At some point, your DUI attorney in San Diego can show you how to apply for Termination of California DMV’s Suspension Action based on Out of State Residency.

From out of state, you may have to contact California's DMV Mandatory Unit to order the 1650 Waiver form from DMV at Telephone Number (916) 657-6576.

You must provide a SR-22 Insurance and certify you will not return to California for three years.

That is the only way to avoid doing the alcohol program in California. What DMV says, absent having done a program in California, you in theory can’t drive here for 3 years, and you must file the forms or you’ll never be able to drive in California again, even on a valid out-of-state license.

For online DUI program information, visit this new San Diego County DUI Law Center Article.

California DMV's 1650 Waiver includes a DL-300 for purposes of an out-of-state SR-22.
The 1650 Waiver packet has explicit instructions on how to complete the affidavit and
what supporting documents are required for approval by the DMV.It can take 4-8 weeks from when the forms are received for DMV to process.

You have to request the waiver and the DMV must note the file so when the completed waiver is returned to the DMV it can be processed. There have been problems with the waiver being processed when it wasn’t noted on the record that a waiver was sent.You supposedly can only apply for this waiver once in a lifetime, according to DMV in California.

Mandatory Custody Not Necessarily Required in every San Diego California DUI criminal court case, attorneys know

Want to try to avoid jail in a California DUI case in San Diego county? Check with your insurance company and enroll in a private residential treatment program or facility.

Read this new article to find out how The San Diego County DUI Law Center did it yesterday.

While it’s better to get the order first, a San Diego Superior court still has the option or discretion to order DUI custody time credit for self-imposed residential treatment program participation.

Appearing before a reasonable San Diego DUI sentencing judge to actually order the program is helpful.

San Diego City Attorney's/Prosecutor’s Position

The San Diego City Attorney’s Appellate Department has researched this issue, and as stated in downtown San Diego Superior Court’s Trial Setting Department at apx. 11:30 a.m. on March 21, 2012, it essentially agrees a court must give credit for a program if it’s ordered in drunk driving cases.

So how can mandatory jail not be mandatory?

Answer

San Diego DUI criminal defense lawyer Rick Mueller's case = months of successful enrollment & completion in the private residential alcohol treatment program at The Crossroads Foundation, a legitimate and effective "rehabilitation facility!"

No insurance is needed for Crossroads.

San Diego DUI suspect Michael Littlejohn-Carroll drove a white Honda Prelude heading north on Interstate 805 at Home Avenue about 12:30 a.m. CHP claims he was weaving and pulled him over, San Diego DUI attorneys are told.

CHP concluded based on a San Diego DUI evaluation to take him into custody but he did the wrong thing if it happened - he resisted. A struggle ended up with the suspect and officers on the ground.

California DUI - mj law automatically makes any driver found with above-zero levels of cannabinoids presumptively guilty of DUI, San Diego lawyers say

A questionable California DUI bill to make up a zero-tolerance driving under the influence (DUI) threshold law for marijuana is being discussed in California Legislature, attorneys in San Diego learned today.

This proposed California DUI - mj law automatically makes any driver found with above-zero levels of cannabinoids in blood or urine presumptively guilty of DUI, San Diego lawyers noting its unfairness and irrationality, as follows:

​1. No scientific basis for zero-tolerance DUI marijuana standards exists as there is no relationship between impairment and the presence of cannabinoids in urine.

2. There is no relationship between impairment and the presence of non-psychoactive cannabinoid metabolites in blood.

3. There is extensive evidence that safe driving is not incompatible with low levels of THC in the blood.

4. Since cannabinoids remain in the system for days or weeks after last use, the bill would effectively outlaw driving by every marijuana user in the state.
