The zero-tolerance suspension takes effect 30 days after the driver receives the suspension order (usually when a police officer makes a traffic stop or an arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol).

This probation is normally called “summary probation,” which means that you don't have to contact a probation officer and you're not regularly supervised.

To crack down on underage drinking, California enacted a “zero tolerance” law with respect to minors and DUIs.
It is a crime for anyone under the age of 21 to drive with a detectable amount of alcohol in their bloodstream. The penalties for this offense are severe, so anyone arrested for a minor DUI should seek out an experienced DUI defense lawyer to help them fight the accusations.
