Vehicle Seizure for DUI
Orange County Vehicle Impoundment Lawyer
DUI charges are tough enough to handle, but having your vehicle seized
by law enforcement only adds stress and expenses to an already difficult
situation. After a DUI, your vehicle will be impounded. Speak with an
Anaheim DUI attorney from our firm to learn how you can get it back.
Vehicle seizure occurs in certain cases when a defendant, whose drunk driving
charge(s) has resulted in the suspension or revocation of his or her license,
is caught operating a motor vehicle under the influence. While the penalty
of having your vehicle impounded is a huge inconvenience, the costs and
complications add insult to injury. You could be required to pay any or
all of the following:
- Vehicle storage costs
- Towing charges
- Administrative fees
- And more
How it Works
All you need is a DUI conviction on your record within the past 10 years
and to be pulled over for suspected drunk driving. The officer might impound
your vehicle if one or more of the following conditions are met:
Vehicle Seizure Penalties
Five-day Vehicle Impoundment—for drivers who have one DUI conviction or one underage DUI charge
within the past 10 years
15-day Vehicle Impoundment—for drivers who have more than one DUI conviction within the past 10 years
