Each year innocent people, including children, the elderly, and pedestrians, are injured and killed in senseless accidents with drunk drivers. Attorney Nicholas K. Lowe stands up for what is right. He wants drunk and intoxicated drivers to pay for the injuries and anguish that they have caused to their victims and the victims’ family members.
It is illegal in the State of California to operate a vehicle while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. Here are a few California State rules concerning driving under the influence:
- California Vehicle Code Section 23152(a) states that “it is a misdemeanor to drive under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.”
- California Vehicle Code Section 23152(b) states that “it is a misdemeanor to drive with .08% or more of alcohol in your blood.”
Here are some U.S. Drunk Driving statistics from 2002 statistics:
- Over 17,400 fatalities were alcohol related.
- Close to 41% of fatal crashes involved alcohol.
- Approximately 258,000 people suffered injuries due to alcohol related accidents.
The lives of innocent people are being cut short by irresponsible drunk drivers. These intoxicated drivers are putting themselves and others at risk when they get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. It only takes a few drinks to become intoxicated, and the results depend upon the drinker’s sex, body type, and health. A blood alcohol level of .08% is definitely a DUI. That is the equivalent of a 150 pound person consuming three alcoholic drinks in a one hour period. Blood alcohol levels between .05-.07% are likely to be considered a DUI. That is the equivalent of a 150 pound person consuming two alcoholic drinks in a one hour period.
