CHP DUI Warrant Task Force in Solano County

The California Highway Patrol is getting tougher on persons with outstanding DUI warrants in Solano County. The agency has announced a DUI warrant crackdown in the form of a task force. According to the California Highway Patrol, the taskforce will target those persons who did not complete necessary actions when charged with a DUI, such as failing violating parole or failure to appear in court.

The California Highway Patrol DUI task force will be after persons in Solano County who failed to appear before a judge or violated probation after being charged with DUI. The task force has quite a task ahead of it. It currently has more than 330,000 misdemeanor and felony warrants related to DUI to work on. The funding is courtesy a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The task force will continue working through September 30.

This is an aggressive approach to DUI, and Pasadena DUI defense attorneys believe that there will be more than a few persons in Solano County with pending DUI warrants on their record, who may a have nasty surprise when they're driving over the next few weeks.

However, it's not too late to set things right. The California Highway Patrol warns persons who have outstanding DUI warrants to turn themselves in at their local CHP office.

A DUI conviction in California is no laughing matter. The state has some of the toughest laws in the country against driving under the influence, and without an expert DUI lawyer on your side, you may end up being convicted for DUI. Punishment can include penalties, fines, and even a prison term. A DUI conviction on your record can interfere with your employment and future education prospects, as well as your social and professional lives.
