Officers attempted to perform life-saving measures on the driver, and he was taken to the hospital, where he later passed away.

No officers were injured in the event and the news is not reporting whether or not the driver was armed.

California Toughest on DUI Charges

California Toughest on DUI Charges

On behalf of Earl L. Jiang, Attorney at Law | posted in Felony DUI on Monday, August 15, 2017.


dui chargesAccording to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and LA Weekly, a 3rd of traffic fatalities in California could be blamed on DUI.

According to WalletHub’ analysis, such disasters and tragedies result in strict DUI states such as California. The Bear Flag Republic ranks first in the country for average insurance rate increases for DUI drivers, fifth for jail time, and sixth for suspension of driver’s licenses.

Despite these already stringent regulations, advocacy groups are extremely active in the pursuit of more strict and punishing regulations.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving Group  has suggested additional checkpoints and expanded reasons, writ, and actions in driver’s license revocations. In contrast to WalletHub’s relatively strong rating of California’s stance, Mothers Against Drunk Driving has given California only 3.5 out of 5 stars for its policies against drunk driving. Further suggestions provided by the group have been to support the mass adoption of ignition-interlocks and to make driving drunk with a child passenger a felony.
