San Francisco DUI Laws and Lawyers and Legal Systems is provided as an information center for those facing criminal charges and/or license suspensions in San Francisco, Oakland, San Mateo County, Marin County, Napa County, Sonoma County, Alameda County and Contra Costa County. It is also intended to counter the growing influence of radical groups pressuring courts, prosecutors and legislators for more unfair DUI laws, increasingly harsh punishment, more erosion of our Constitutional protections, and ultimately a return to the days of prohibition. The website for the National Motorists Association presents views on such important DUI and DWI issues as the constitutionality of roadblocks, reliance upon questionable breath tests, officer-administered license suspensions, inappropriate penalties, and selecting a qualified San Francisco DUI lawyer or drunk driving defense attorney.
