About DUI (Driving Under the Influence) and Motorcycle Accidents
DUI, or driving under the influence, is a term used in criminal law to describe the offense of operating a motor vehicle on a public roadway while “under the influence.” Having a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or greater, and/or having abilities that are impaired due to alcohol or a controlled substance will mean that a driver may be found to be under the influence, under California law. A controlled substance in this case may mean an illegal drug, prescription drug or even over-the-counter medicine, as long as it impairs a driver’s abilities.
