Vehicle Impoundment

Aggressive Defense from a Mesa DUI Lawyer

Being arrested for DUI exposes a person to a wide variety of penalties, some of them extremely harsh. In addition to fines and possible jail time, license suspension and ignition interlock devices, a DUI also results in the impoundment of your vehicle. If you have had your vehicle impounded after a DUI arrest, contact a Mesa DUI lawyer to discuss your options.

Vehicle impoundment is a substantial risk in certain types of DUI cases. If a person is arrested for extreme DUI, in which their blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.15% or above, vehicle impoundment can occur immediately. It can also occur in cases involving super extreme DUI (a BAC reading of 0.20% or higher) as well as in felony DUI cases. The impoundment can last up to 30 days. There are circumstances, when a person has been charged with felony DUI, which can contribute to a sanction going beyond impoundment. The vehicle may be subject to forfeiture, which essentially means that the car is permanently taken from the driver by the government. Contact the Firm to discuss your options and determine whether you can avoid impoundment or forfeiture or attempt to get an already impounded car released.
