California law says that a driver is legally intoxicated after consuming alcohol if his or her blood alcohol content is .08% or higher. This applies to the use of drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, or even prescription drugs. A driver who drives drunk is considered negligent; he or she chooses to put other drivers at risk.
The bottom line is intoxication by any means can cause accidents and severe personal injuries. Motorists and pedestrians injured by intoxicated drivers have legal rights against the negligent driver and oftentimes the establishment that served the drunk driver the alcohol.
