Thank you for your question I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking again.
You are correct of course. This is not just speeding and not having a license, it is also DUI and that is also another license suspension and a misdemeanor
record. Furthermore it would open her up to liability for negligent or vehicular injury or homicide if the people in the other car died.
I do not know how your grand could think it is no big deal considering negligent/vehicular injury could land you in jail for up to 5 years and DUI is a misdemeanor that while it will not land her in jail can cause her license to be suspended beyond the 4 years.
This is all on top of the civil suit for damages which if she does not pay the CA DMV
will place a lien on her license and registration which would prevent her from registering any car or getting a license until the lien is paid off.
