On August 20, 2016, City of Vallejo Police Officers conducted a six-hour long DUI and driver’s license checkpoint. The checkpoint was held at the intersection of Sonoma Boulevard and Solano Avenue. At the conclusion of the California Office of Traffic Safety funded drunk driving enforcement the Vallejo Police Department had arrested three drivers for suspicion of drunk driving.
The Vallejo Police Officers also reported that fifteen vehicles were impounded after drivers were found to have been driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license. Driving with a suspended license can result in probation, fines and possible jail time depending on why the persons license is suspended and whether he or she can clear the suspension and obtain a clear license. A DUI and driver’s license suspension attorney can often get suspended license charges reduced if the driver can get their license.
A drinking and driving conviction for a first offense in Solano County, Napa, or elsewhere in the Bay Area can result in punishment including probation, fines, a DUI school and up to 6 months in jail under the California Vehicle Code. Drivers with multiple offenses for driving under the influence face even greater punishment. Whether arrested for DUI in Vallejo, Benicia, Fairfield, American Canyon, Napa, or San Rafael, you need to call an experienced aggressive driving under the influence attorney for help.
