A DUI This 4th of July Season -- You Can't Afford It

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 3, 2012) - The Fourth of July -- it's a milestone holiday, the official kick-off of the summer haze. The fireworks, the parties, the barbeques, the drinks, the arrests, and the DUI charges are a common scene in the state of California.

If you are planning on driving on any road in the State of California, it's always best to be forewarned and forearmed when the Fourth of July approaches that a DUI charge is something you cannot afford personally, financially or professionally. Getting convicted for a DUI charge will leave a long and detrimental mark on your public driving record. Presently, the existing legislation instructs the DMV to record a DUI charge for a period of ten years from the time the arrest was made for non-commercial drivers. The time frame is even longer for those with commercial driving privileges. This could affect future job searches, as you may have to legally report DUI convictions on job applications. The toll on your finances as you face mounting legal bills and the level of stress will also rain down on one of the most spirited days this year. In other words, those one or two drinks that put you over the legal blood level just aren't worth it.

Getting arrested for DUI doesn't mean, however, that you should suffer conviction for it or unnecessary stress and expense. Suspension of your driving privileges doesn't mean you should just sit idly by and wait for the same to be lifted. You have to act fast and act accordingly by securing the legal services of a competent DUI Defense Attorney in the state.
