Instead of refraining from drinking and driving, some drivers in Orange County love taking the risk of driving on a suspended license. They are keen on driving and this is infuriating many folks.
This is what an undercover sting operation by the police at Newport Beach, Calif. revealed. According to a CBS News, the Sheriff’s Department cited seven men and one woman in Newport Beach in the course of a few hours after they were caught driving moments after their licenses were suspended.
The sting operation by deputies from the Orange County Sheriff’s office was conducted at the Newport Beach courthouse. The exercise was aimed at drivers who have been charged with a DUI and should not have been driving following suspension of their driving license.
One of the drivers caught in the sting operation was Sergio Oseguera, who was charged with a DUI. Oseguera’s impatience only resulted in his SUV being impounded. Incidentally, he has multiple DUI charges against him. According to DUI attorneys, such an action can result in heavy fines and other charges.
No worries though. If you have a legitimate reason why you are driving perhaps you cannot have the law book thrown at you if you pick up an all-star attorney which can be found on the site USAttorneys.com.
