Moving the vehicle in accordance with this subdivision does not affect the question of fault. The driver shall also immediately do either of the following:
 
(1) Locate and notify the owner or person in charge of that property of the name and address of the driver and owner of the vehicle involved and, upon locating the driver of any other vehicle involved or the owner or person in charge of any damaged property, upon being requested, present his or her driver's license, and vehicle registration, to the other driver, property owner, or person in charge of that property. The information presented shall include the current residence address of the driver and of the registered owner. If the registered owner of an involved vehicle is present at the scene, he or she shall also, upon request, present his or her driver's license information, if available, or other valid identification to the other involved parties.
 
(2) Leave in a conspicuous place on the vehicle or other property damaged a written notice giving the name and address of the driver and of the owner of the vehicle involved and a statement of the circumstances thereof and shall without unnecessary delay notify the police department of the city wherein the collision occurred or, if the collision occurred in unincorporated territory, the local headquarters of the Department of the California Highway Patrol.
 
(b) Any person who parks a vehicle which, prior to the vehicle again being driven, becomes a runaway vehicle and is involved in an accident resulting in damage to any property, attended or unattended, shall comply with the requirements of this section relating to notification and reporting and shall, upon conviction thereof, be liable to the penalties of this section for failure to comply with the requirements.
 
(c) Any person failing to comply with all the requirements of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by imprisonment in the county jail not exceeding six months, or by a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by both that imprisonment and fine.

First Offense DUI (Misdemeanor) may result in a loss of license for six to ten months and loss of commercial license for one year. That is why it is critical to request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest or you waive your right to a hearing which will result in a license suspension thirty one days after your arrest. Mr. Price has successfully defended many people at DMV and kept them driving.

In Court, penalties of a first offense DUI range from a three to nine month alcohol class, MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) class, Public Work Service, up to six months in jail, possible interlock ignition device installation, and fines. DUI cases are extremely difficult to navigate and that is why you need the experience of Joshua Price in order to successfully defend your case!

One who has been charged with a prior felony DUI and receives another standard DUI arrest thereafter may be charged with a felony! Even if the new DUI arrest may otherwise treated as a second offense, because there has been a prior felony DUI, the prosecution can now file as a felony.

One must still request a DMV hearing within 10 days from the date of arrest to maintain their right to a hearing. One also needs to immediately reveal to their attorney that they have a prior felony DUI so that the attorney knows going into court and/or DMV. The penalties for this offense can range from a minimum three year license revocation, prison time, alcohol classes, public work service, MADD class, interlock ignition device installation, and fines.
