Why has the FDA recently required manufacturers of zolpidem-containing products (Ambien, Ambien-CR, Edluar, and Zolpimist) to lower dose recommendations?

The FDA recently required manufacturers of zolpidem-containing products (Ambien, Ambien-CR, Edluar, and Zolpimist) to lower dose recommendations, say California DUI attorneys.  

FDA has recommended lower doses of zolpidem containing drugs as a result of driving simulations that found that serum levels of zolpidem greater than 50ng/mL can adversely impact driving performance, California DUI lawyers are told. 

The cited reference points out that recent studies have shown that “8 hours after taking 10 mg Ambien, 15% of women and 3% of men had serum concentrations of zolpidem >50 ng/mL, say  California DUI attorneys.

With extended-release zolpidem 12.5 mg, 33% of women and 25% of men had serum concentrations greater than 50 ng/mL 8 hours after taking the drug.” (The Medical Letter, January 21, 2013, 55(1408):5)

On January 31, 2013, there will be a dedication of a California highway sign in Santee in memory of Pamela who was killed by a drunk driver. Visuals include the freeway sign and the wrecked SUV, California DUI lawyers announce


On September 20, 2009, a 17‐year‐old girl decided to get behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated
on alcohol and drugs, California DUI attorneys relate.  As she left a party in La Mesa, east San Diego county, she struck a car, injuring that driver. The teen then left the scene of the crash and drove to Santee. When she came off SR‐125 at more than 70 miles per hour, she unfortunately struck the SUV of Pamela Sue Marabeas on Mission Gorge Road, California DUI lawyers are told.


On January 31, 2013, there will be a San Diego county dedication of a California highway sign in Santee in memory of Pamela  who was killed by a drunk driver. Visuals include the California freeway sign and the wrecked SUV.


The mangled SUV is now being used in Sheriff's Start Smart classes as a visual reminder of the deadly
consequences of drunk driving.   Since June 2010, free Start Smart classes have been regularly offered to newdrivers and their parents/guardians so they clearly understand their responsibilities when a teen starts to
drive. The class also clarifies the restrictions of a provisional license and social host rules in the county. There was a class five days in San Diego's 4S Del Norte High School.


Alcohol often plays a role in Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day celebrations. The San Diego County
Sheriff’s Department wants to remind you that the best way to stay safe on the roads and avoid
harming your loved ones or someone else’s, is to remain responsible, and that means planning ahead, not driving drunk, and designating a sober driver.

From 2006 to 2012 at the intersection of SR‐125 and Mission Gorge Road, here are some California DUI stats:

61 traffic collisions
14 caused by a California DUI driver
16 caused by speeding
Of the 61 crashes, three were deadly.
Of the three deadly crashes, two were caused by California DUI, one by a floor mat stuck on the accelerator.

Tougher DUI laws exist in California these days than in the old days, lawyers remind. Now a person can be going 56 mph in a 35 mph zone on a first time California DUI and be looking at a mandatory 60 days in jail, attorneys point out

Tougher DUI laws exist in California these days than in the old days, lawyers remind.  Now a person can be going 56 mph in a 35 mph zone on a first time California DUI and be looking at a mandatory 60 days in jail, attorneys point out.  This is one of the many California DUI enhancement or aggravated penalties making drunk driving cases more difficult to defend, say San Diego lawyers.

The California DUI Excessive Speed Enhancement is found in California Vehicle Code Section 23582 which states in a, b and d:
(a) Any person who drives a vehicle 30 or more miles per
hour over the maximum, prima facie, or posted speed limit on a
freeway, or 20 or more miles per hour over the maximum, prima facie,
or posted speed limit on any other street or highway, and in a manner
prohibited by Section 23103 during the commission of a violation of
Section 23152 (DUI law) or 23153 shall, in addition to the punishment
prescribed for that person upon conviction of a violation of Section
23152 or 23153, be punished by an additional and consecutive term of
60 days in the county jail.

[This means 20 or more miles per hour on roads other than freeway,
or 30 miles or more on the freeway will expose a California DUI driver
to this enhancement, say San Diego attorneys.]

   (b) If the court grants probation or suspends the execution of
sentence, it shall require as a condition of probation or suspension
that the defendant serve 60 days in the county jail
, in addition and
consecutive to any other sentence prescribed by this chapter.

[Shall require appears to make it mandatory under the statute, say San Diego DUI
lawyers.]

   (d) The additional term provided in this section shall not be
imposed unless the facts of driving in a manner prohibited by Section
23103 and driving the vehicle 30 or more miles per hour over the
maximum, prima facie, or posted speed limit on a freeway, or 20 or
more miles per hour over the maximum, prima facie, or posted speed
limit on any other street or highway, are charged in the accusatory
pleading and admitted or found to be true by the trier of fact.  A
finding of driving in that manner shall be based on facts in addition
to the fact that the defendant was driving while under the influence
of alcohol, any drug, or both, or with a specified percentage of
alcohol in the blood.
[A lot hinges on the California DUI facts and the prosecutor's ultimate 
drunk driving related-charges, remind San Diego DUI attorneys.]

The trapping drunk driving roadblock was set up at a difficult place to avoid, with a bridge at 2600 Ingraham St. from 11 pm to just past 3:00 a.m. This checkpoint has been identified several times by the San Diego County DUI Law Center's free location site

California DUI lawyers try to warn people to stay out of Pacific Beach on weekends unless they have a designated driver as nearly 80 to 90% of all San Diego DUI arrests are made out of their.  And they often have checkpoints like last night's that you can't avoid, California DUI attorneys remind.

Over 600 motorists were trapped in probably an unconstitutional checkpoint with no option of avoiding it, San Diego DUI attorneys insists.

Almost 475 were screened.

24 motorists were screened via voluntary field tests or acrobatics & drunk driving gymnastics, San Diego DUI lawyers are told.

Twelve folks were arrested for California DUI, attorneys are told.

The guy who invented the "breathalyzer," a contraption designed to see if drivers are DUI or not, was Dr. Tom Jones, California DUI lawyers relate

The idea of blowing in a machine to transfer your breath into that machine in order to obtain your blood alcohol level in your body is kind of mind-boggling, DUI attorney in California relate.  

Not to mention inaccurate, say California DUI lawyers.

The guy who invented the "breathalyzer," a contraption designed to see if drivers are DUI or not, was Dr. Tom Jones.  (This is not the famous singer although the age of 77 may be similar.)  Dr. Jones died in North Wales just the other night.

His idea made cops go crazy going after drunk drivers.  Before his gadget, cops had to "guess" if someone was drunk. Then his machine produced numbers.  Those numbers made the roads safer by getting drivers with high numbers off the roads.

It was about 35 years ago when he sold his gadgets to DUI police throughout every country in the Western world.

He was the genesis for the beginning of the manufacturing, production, development and sales of DUI breathalyzers.

He started "Lion Labs" to sell his idea.  MPD, a US company, bought it 21 years ago.

He achieved the Order of the British Empire for his contributions and efforts, establishing a grant at Bangor University to help young people become scientists.

A Yale study just released says that men on a (criminal case including DUI) jury will "more likely" find someone guilty if she is overweight, California DUI lawyers are told. Wow. These YU shrinks conclude male jurors are more likely to believe an obese lady is a "repeat (e.g. DUI) offender" who had malicious intent!

Coke.  McDonald's.  Carbs.  Meat.  People like to talk about the things that make them FAT.  Many do not want to be overweight.  So they get away from eating the garbage and instead eat smart.  Even work-out.

What about the people who can't control eating OR drinking?  Other people who serve as jurors think they may be guilty or repeat DUI offenders because of they way they look, California DUI attorneys report.

A Yale study just released says that men on a (criminal case including DUI) jury will "more likely" find someone guilty if she is overweight, California DUI lawyers are told.

Wow.  These YU shrinks conclude male jurors are more likely to believe an obese lady is a "repeat (e.g. DUI) offender" who had malicious intent!

These Ivy league psychology experts had 471 pretend peers of different body sizes in a check fraud case.

For identification purposes as the defendant, 4 images were presented:

Large man
Lean man
Large woman and
Lean woman.

They pretend peers rated the person's guilt on a 5 pt. ranking.   No heavy bias was present when the female pretenders ranked the pretend females or when either females or men assessed the probable guilt of the mean.

The male pretend peers explained that physical bias had to do with their judgment on pretend female defendants.

Slim males were significantly more likely to find overweight females guilty, often saying that "fat" women were "repeat offenders" with some kind of  "awareness" of their crimes.

Females had little or no "weight" bias toward any of the 4 categories and no fat bias by any gender when determining guilt of males.

Normal body mass index is 18.5 - 25.  The AMA says average Americans' BMI = 28.6.  Fat is 25-30.  Obese is over 30.

25 San Diego drivers unnecessarily inconvenienced for false California DUI cop suspicions, lawyers believe

Only 1 California DUI arrest was made at southern San Diego county's Chula Vista drunk driving saturation  patrol this weekend, local criminal defense attorneys are told.  And the city considers this a success!

Forty-two cars were lit up and detained by California DUI cops fishing for San Diego drunks, lawyers say.

1 for 42.  Wow.  To harass motorists based on mere suspicion or hunch is not only against the law, it's a waste of time. It's certainly an inconvenience to those 41 who were not DUI.

Sure they also got a guy for pot.  (He probably had a legal prescription anyway!)

15 of the others were cited for California vehicle code citations.  No DUI or San Diego drunk driving, attorneys insist.

So what does that say about the 25 or 26 other drivers who were not cited?  They probably will not sue because of the time and expense.  So these cops will get away with something.....again!

California ABC's "Minor Decoy" operations helps limit alcohol abuse and opportunities for minors to get alcohol. San Diego DUI Operations will continue for the next six months in 2013, say attorneys



California ABC's "Minor Decoy" operations helps limit alcohol abuse and opportunities for minors to get alcohol. San Diego DUI Operations will continue for the next six months in 2013, attorneys are told.

This weekend it was announced that San Diego Sheriff‘s DUI Department is partnering with the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) to try to assist to combat underage drinking and other crimes at these ABC-licensed establishments, say lawyers.

DUI and other Deputies from the San Diego County Sheriff's Department, Agents from California Alcoholic Beverage Control and 3 minor decoys conducted a "Minor Decoy" Operation at various locations in the north county. The operation involved minors who tested "on-sale" and "off-sale" establishments.

The minor decoys tested retailers and servers at a number of locations in an attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages inside their establishments. Out of 15 locations checked, five establishments provided alcohol to the decoys, resulting in 6 employees receiving citations.

In July 2012, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department received an ABC grant of $100,000. The money will be spent in the communities patrolled by the Sheriff’s Department to help fight alcohol-related crimes and educate ABC-licensed businesses. The goal of the ABC Grant Assistance Program is to partner with local law enforcement agencies to help make communities safer. The cooperative efforts of the Sheriff’s Department and ABC are aimed at building positive working relationships between all stakeholders and increasing safety in San Diego County.

San Diego Police Department trapped over 900 motorists on 5th Avenue Friday night beginning at 11 pm until 3 a.m. January 11-12, 2013. The San Diego County DUI Law Center posted this California DUI checkpoint at this lawyer site.

January 12, 2013 News Release

Thanks to new so-called California DUI Mini-Grant" funds, San Diego Police Department trapped over 900 motorists on 5th Avenue Friday night beginning at 11 pm until 3 a.m. January 11-12, 2013.

Twelve folks were busted for drunk driving at this California roadblock in downtown San Diego, most of them coming from the Gas Lamp area.

Over 500 motorists were screened by San Diego DUI police officers.  

Over 25 folks agreed to subject themselves to optional California DUI field testing, attorneys are told.

One person was arrested for reckless driving after he turned his vehicle around and drove the wrong way on the one-way street of 5th Avenue with no headlights.  He was trying to avoid the checkpoint.  But this San Diego DUI checkpoint trap apparently did not allow motorists to legally avoid the checkpoint which is arguably in violation of their rights per the law in this California drunk driving attorney article.

The Prosecuting DUI Attorney and the California DMV must first proof DRIVING before you can be convicted of DUI or lose your license, lawyers remind!!

Every week, the San Diego County DUI Law Center's attorney Rick Mueller is asked to review and analyze drunk driving cases which involve driving and corpus issues.

Not only do they have to prove DRIVING in the California DUI criminal case, they must do so in the California DMV case.

Many approaches are involved.  Click on the above articles and publications frequently used by California DUI lawyers to contest these germane issues.

A criminal case is not bound by a civil license determination. 

Legal precedent is cited and rules relating to these issues are set forth in these California DUI lawyer publications.

The first article refers to the 10 initial questions one may want to ask a California DUI attorney when assessing the facts of the incident.

The Corpus Delicti Rule prohibits conviction of a California DUI charge unless there is ample proof of the corpus independent of any extra-judicial statements, admissions, or confessions by the California DUI accused, lawyers remind.

"Should I hire a 'Former Prosecutor' as my San Diego California DUI Lawyer?"

"Should I hire a 'Former Prosecutor' as my San Diego California DUI Attorney?"  That is a fair question.

Many California lawyers handle drunk driving cases in San Diego.   Attorneys can be "defense lawyers" or "prosecutors."   In every California DUI case, there is a prosecutor and a defense attorney.

One lawyer "prosecutes" DUI cases, trying to convict the person.

The other lawyer "defends" the drunk driving charges, trying to have the person acquitted.

So what happens when DUI prosecuting attorneys become DUI defense lawyers in California?

These California lawyers now in private practice often advertise as "former prosecutors."  They hope people will think that someone helps.

These California attorneys point to handling hundreds if not thousands of criminal cases or trials including DUI prosecutions.

The question is, should YOU hire a FORMER PROSECUTOR as your CALIFORNIA DUI ATTORNEY?

Keep in mind the job of a California DUI criminal defense lawyer is completely different from that of a California DUI prosecuting attorney.

The California prosecutor is in the business destroying accused people and their lives.  So much is at stake and the prosecuting DUI attorney is there to make sure the person is convicted of  DUI, has her or his license suspended, pays fines, suffers penalties, has an ignition interlock device installed, goes to jail, has her or his vehicle impounded, performs public work service program and maybe even loses her or his job in the process.

The California DUI criminal defense lawyer specialist is there to PREVENT this destruction from taking place.  These drunk driving criminal defense attorneys BUILD a case.  Sometimes they start with little or nothing.  They often have negative and difficult pieces to work with.  Now they are ask to create something, maybe even a masterpiece.  It takes time to do this right.

The California DUI attorney prosecutor asks the arresting police officer questions like:

"What happened?  Then what happened?  What happened next?  What did you see?   Where did you see it?...etc. ... So based on that you arrested the defendant for DUI?"

The California DUI defense lawyer must dig and dig, find dirt, find problems with the prosecution's case and share them in a cohesive presentation.

Next time you see a California DUI lawyer advertisement or commercial for a FORMER PROSECUTOR, look for the boast that he or she says they had hundreds of trials or handled thousands of cases.  

Remember their experience is quite different to what folks accused of DUI are looking for in a DEFENSE attorney in California.

For years, these "experienced defense attorneys" handled "hundreds of cases."  They broke the chops of California DUI defendants and destroyed countless lives of those accused of drunk driving.

When they were prosecuting attorneys, they thought nothing of sending a man or woman to jail in California.

Now they have made the change, switched sides, taken on a new title and must somehow magically acquire the mentality to suddenly develop a new habit of creatively building a masterful DEFENSE.

When a person or soldier comes to the U.S. after he defects from another country, does he ever brag about how many United States soldiers he killed while his country was at war with America?

ESTIMATION STUDY OF FATAL CRASH RATES FOR SUSPENDED/REVOKED AND UNLICENSED DRIVERS IN CALIFORNIA STUDY BY DMV

ESTIMATION BY DMV OF FATAL CRASH RATES FOR SUSPENDED/REVOKED AND UNLICENSED DRIVERS IN CALIFORNIA

According to the DMV, this study's results provide strong evidence that suspended/revoke and unlicensed drivers are much more hazardous on the road than are validly licensed drivers, California DUI attorneys report.

Compared to licensed drivers, those who drive without a valid license are nearly 3 times more likely to cause a fatal crash relative to their exposure, according to the DMV information found by California DUI lawyers.


If convicted of driving on a suspended license in California per Vehicle Code Section 14601 et.seq., penalties include vehicle impound, over $1,000 in fines., jail time, suspension of license and probation, lawyers warn.


This California DMV study's findings strongly justify the use of countermeasures, including vehicle impoundment, to control suspended/revoked and unlicensed drivers and to reduce crashes caused by these drivers, San Diego DUI lawyers are told.

Please note this report is issued as a publication of the Department of Motor Vehicles Research and Development Branch rather than an official report of the State of California.

In a nutshell, this California DMV study used a quasi-induced exposure (QIE) analysis technique to estimate annual fatal crash involvement rates for suspended/revoked, unlicensed, and validly licensed drivers in California from 1987 through 2009 using fatal crash data obtained from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and California Department of Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS). The annual fatal crash involvement ratios range from 0.81 to 0.91 for validly licensed drivers, 1.44 to 4.29 for S/R drivers, and 1.60 to 3.50 for unlicensed drivers, respectively, over the 23-year time period studied. The annual at-fault overinvolvement rates for suspended/revoked and unlicensed drivers relative to validly licensed drivers range from 1.57 to 4.93 for the suspended/revoked group and from 1.84 to 4.10 for the unlicensed group. Although the annual rates fluctuate, suspended/revoked and unlicensed drivers were overinvolved as at-fault drivers in fatal crashes every year relative to validly licensed drivers. The fatal crash involvement ratios obtained for all years combined (1987 through 2009) are 0.86 for validly licensed drivers, 2.23 for S/R drivers, and 2.34 for unlicensed drivers. The at-fault overinvolvement rates for the suspended/revoked and unlicensed groups, relative to the validly licensed group, are 2.60 and 2.73, respectively, for this 23-year period.

California DMV / DUI references include:

An in-depth literature review of studies on the use of vehicle impoundment found that this countermeasure and other vehicle-based sanctions yielded substantial traffic safety benefits when applied in various jurisdictions to drivers caught driving without a valid license.

Voas, R. B., & DeYoung, D. J. (2002). Vehicle action: Effective policy for controlling (DUI) drunk and other high-risk drivers? Accident Analysis and Prevention, 34(3), 263-270.

California license suspension/revocation has been used for decades to control problem drivers. California departmental studies have consistently found that withdrawal of the driving privilege reduces subsequent traffic violations and crashes among treated drivers. This safety outcome is achieved even though most suspended/revoked drivers continue to drive during the period of suspension or revocation (U.S. Department of Transportation, 2008).

The reason is that, even though the license suspension/revocation order is being violated, suspended/revoked drivers limit their exposure and drive more carefully to avoid detection (Clark & Bobevski, 2008; Hagen, McConnell, & Williams, 1980; Ross, H. L., & Gonzales, P. (1988). Effects of license revocation on (DUI) drunk driving offenders. Accident Analysis and Prevention. 20(5), 379-391.)

The sworn statement of probable cause after a DUI arrest cannot be blank in the California DMV's evidence, lawyers insist

San Diego County DUI Law Center today published a new article on attacking California DMV's empty PROBABLE CAUSE page on the required sworn Officer's Statement DUI report.

DMV delivers to the driver's California DUI lawyer with a blank page 2 of the sworn DMV DS 367.

What should an attorney emphasize at the California administrative hearing to save this person's driving privilege?

Start with the requirement that California DUI officers must make a sworn statement of the facts and circumstances that led to the stop or contact.

A blank page 2 Probable Cause on the DMV's sworn Officer's Statement simply does not comply with CaliforniaVehicle Code 13880 as required by the California Supreme Court.

In such a situation, the California Supreme Court basically holds that police officers are not relieved of providing ANY information relevant to the DUI enforcement action in the DS 367.  The DUI cops must so include.

The California Supreme Court did in fact relieve a cop of having to include ALL information relevant to a DUI enforcement action.

MacDonald emphasized that only a sworn statement's technical omissions are allowed to be supplemented or explained by unsworn DUI police reports, but not substantive omissions in the DS 367 form.

"Everywhere on the Internet it seems to say that after I get a DUI in California, I only have '10 days to contact DMV' - is that true, lawyers are asked?"

"Everywhere on the Internet it seems to say that after I get a DUI in California, I only have '10 days to contact DMV' - is that true, lawyers are asked?"

That depends,say California DUI attorneys.

That depends on whether or not you were given a pink DMV order of suspension/temporary license.

If you were not given a pink California DMV order of suspension, then you have to wonder what happened:

a) Did the California DUI officer fail to do his or her job in issuing a pink California DMV order of suspension?

b) Or did the California DUI officer issue the order but either the jail or the officer failed to get you a copy?

If the latter, then your California DUI attorney should timely contact DMV to make sure DMV does not otherwise suspend.

If the latter and you are past your 10 days, a California DUI lawyer should advise you that if the officer failed to check a box at the top of the order or failed to sign the bottom of the paper, then DMV Sacramento California will likely send out an automated, computer-generated order, usually about 4 pages long. Then your California drunk driving attorney can still make a timely request for a DMV hearing to avoid the suspension.

The key is to make sure you are preserving your right to a license suspension action hearing arising out of this California DUI arrest, attorneys remind.

If you were not served the pink order, it's possible (but unlikely) California DMV is taking no action. In any event, they can't suspend your license without due process and an opportunity to be heard.

Sometimes it depends on the location of the California DUI arrest. Many military bases in San Diego County do not issue pink orders of suspension, for example.

Sometimes it depends on the cop. An inexperienced or tired California DUI police officer may have dropped the ball. If no pink order, then no need to contact within 10 days.

A California DUI attorney can advise you after reviewing your case here. If you were over the .08% BAC legal limit and the officer did not make sure you received a pink order, you should be very careful. You do not want to lose your right to a hearing. Because once those 10 calendar days are up, if the officer claims you were served but you never got the copy, you may up a creek without a paddle. Your California DUI lawyer will assess the respective facts, issues and risks with you, so you take the proper course of action.
