Every year people descend on California’s Central Coast in Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo to enjoy the beautiful scenery and great wines without considering how to avoid being charged with DUI. California has very strict DUI laws. Enforcement near Central Coast wineries is particularly heavy due to the higher rates of alcohol related accidents near vineyards offering wine tastings. That’s why the best way to enjoy what the Central Coast has to offer is to take one of the many tours that offer safe transportation as well as interesting and useful historical and cultural information about Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo Counties. If you don’t want to take a chauffeured tour, you should at least consider designating a driver to avoid getting charged with DUI because it’s particularly difficult to fight these charges when you’re on the road after tasting wine. If you’ve been charged with DUI, it’s important to hire an experienced Central Coast DUI attorney that’s familiar with the laws, rules and customs.
