Riverside Driving Under the Influence of Drugs Cases

About Driving Under the Influence of Drugs Charges

In California it is illegal to be under the influence of an illegal controlled substance and this includes while driving a vehicle or boat. Driving and using drugs is just as dangerous to the driver and others and drinking and driving. A person may be stopped and subjected to tests just as a drunk driver can, but the officer must have had reasonable cause for the stop. If you have been arrested and charged with driving under the influence of drugs you need the assistance of a Riverside drug defense attorney.

If the officer wants to conduct a Field sobriety test you are not obligated to agree, but refusal to submit to a breathalyzer test would result in an automatic suspension of your license. Roadside testing may be embarrassing, especially when it results in an arrest for the crime of DUI. A blood or urine test will be done at the station. Even if you are told that you failed this test all is not lost. There are defenses which an experienced driving under the influence of drugs defense lawyer can use to protect you and your driver's license. The DMV will automatically suspend your license unless you request a hearing within 10 days of the time of your arrest. Skilled representation is important to protecting your driving privileges.

We understand that this is a very stressful time and will work with you to obtain a positive outcome in your case. Driving while under the influence of prescription drugs can be looked upon by prosecutors just as seriously as any other drug or alcohol. Don't take chances with your legal rights or freedoms.
