What Do I Need to Know About DUI?
Driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol is dangerous and has varied repercussions depending on previous offenses and how impaired the driver was at the time of arrest. It is important to remember that Florida is an implied consent state. Implied consent means that once you sign your driver’s license you agree to submit to any field sobriety test you are asked to participate in by a law enforcement officer. If the field sobriety test results demonstrate impairment of normal faculties or that you have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or greater then you will be taken to jail for DUI and prosecuted accordingly.
If you are convicted of DUI, it is at the discretion of the court where you serve your sentence. The court has the option to allow someone convicted of DUI to serve their sentence in a traditional county jail setting or a residential drug and alcohol treatment program.
The penalties for DUI increase if there is a minor present in the vehicle at the time of arrest or if the driver’s BAC is .15 or greater. In addition, the penalties for each subsequent DUI conviction progressively become harsher. For instance, a second DUI conviction results in the mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle.
Possible DUI Penalties
- Jail time
- Mandatory substance abuse counseling
- Driver’s license suspension
- Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device (IID)
- Your vehicle may be impounded for an extended period
