Being arrested for drunken driving is a common occurrence in the US. In Florida this has become a growing concern. For this reason, the Florida authority has made strict rules to control the drunken driving offense. Although this is a traffic rule violation, you will still be facing severe penalties if you are caught in the street driving after consuming either alcohol or drugs. According to Florida DUI law, if your blood alcohol content ration is higher than 0.08%, you may get charged with DUI.
In case, this is the first time you are getting arrested for DUI, your driving license may be banned for a certain period of time. You may be ordered to serve community service. You may have to pay fine for the offense. You may have to serve prison time. In case of second time arrest, you may be sentenced with ignition interlock.
Being charged with DUI is not the end of everything. You still have a chance to battle it out. Get in touch with an experienced DUI defense attorney Florida.
