For anyone who has driven a car in Los Angeles, it should come as no surprise that a study by data company Inrix named the city as the worst in the United States for sitting in traffic for the fourth year in a row. According to the study, Los Angeles drivers spend an average of 81 hours in freeway traffic each year - about five less hours per year than Washington D.C. and San Francisco, the second and third worst traffic cities in the United States, respectively.
Getting pulled over is rarely a pleasant experience, and if you have been drinking it can be terrifying as well as having lasting consequences. Driving under the influence is always a bad decision, but unfortunately still occurs - the 2015 Annual Report of the California DUI Management Information System reported 160,388 DUI arrests in 2013 and over the last ten years has consistently maintained an arrest rate around 70-80%. California has extremely strict penalties for DUI offenses, so if you find yourself in this situation it may help to understand what rights you have.
