DUI Laws

(954) 745-5818

Drinking and Driving? Arrested? No license? This sounds like more than a night out on the town. Florida makes it illegal to drive with a Blood Alcohol Content of .08 or more. Florida also makes it illegal to drive with any drug and/or alcohol combination that impairs your normal faculties to drive or operate a motor vehicle.

Not only does Florida make it a crime to drive while intoxicated but Florida includes the clause that anyone who is in "actual physical control" of the vehicle is also guilty of the offense. This is used by Florida to include those persons who are found on the side of the road with the keys in the ignition or caused an accident due to driving impaired. This clause is ment to reduce the burden on the prosecutors, since they don't have to show that you were actually driving or operating the motor vehicle.

WARNING! Florida's has a Ten Day Rule for DUIs!!

In Florida when a person is arrested for a DUI you only have 10 days to request a Formal Review hearing where you can fight to get back your license. Failure to do so will result in at least a six (6) month suspension and as much as an eighteen (18) month suspension of your driving privileges.
