Arrested but Not Convicted of DUI? Little-Known Law Allows the DMV to Suspend Your License

Arrested but Not Convicted of DUI? Little-Known Law Allows the DMV to Suspend Your License – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Just for being arrested on suspicions of DUI, the California Department of Motor Vehicles can suspend your license.

Recently, an Orange County judge threw out Thuan Ha’s DUI case, yet a month later, a mid-level DMV employee suspended the Westminster resident’s license based on the same evidence the courts rejected.

How does this happen?

The power comes from a little-known law that grants the DMV the authority to suspend the license of anyone arrested on charges of driving with a blood-alcohol content over the legal limit.  The law has been in effect for nearly 25 years, but it now faces a legal challenge in a lawsuit filed by a nonprofit group called the California DUI Lawyers Association and attorney Steven R. Mandell.
