California has new state laws that have increased the penalties for driving under the influence and they can be more severe than penalties from other types of felony charges.
The process usually begins if the police have set up a sobriety checkpoint or you are driving erratically (see below) and, therefore, pulled over. The officer will start asking questions about whether you have been drinking, where, how long ago, etc. It is best to be polite and not answer those questions. Any statement you give can and will be used against you in court.
