Am I allowed to turn down a Breathalyzer test?

You've likely heard stories through the grapevine about a drunk driving checkpoint or DUI stop. Maybe you've been involved in either one of these first-hand as a driver or passenger. Either way, there's a lot of misinformation out there about these tests and what happens if you decline them. So, are you allowed to decline a Breathalyzer test?

What are the consequences of a DUI conviction?

There are many drivers out there who find themselves pulled over for suspicion of DUI in Orlando. A DUI charge is one that can be fought in a court, even if it is your second, third or subsequent charge. You shouldn't wait until your first hearing or court appearance to begin your defense of this charge because you could put yourself in a hole. Here are the consequences of a DUI conviction.

Understanding what occurs when your driver's license is suspended

The saying has always been that it is a right and not a privilege to drive not only in Florida but also across the country. Those who wish to drive must pass a driving test that is divided into two parts: a written test and a practical test. Drivers then have to obey all the rules of the road if they wish to keep their driver's license in good standing. Here's what happens if your license happens to get suspended in Orlando.

The ins and outs of a drunk driving checkpoint

Being stopped for suspicion of drunk driving is stressful. Even if you've had a couple of drinks but you are not under the influence, you will still likely be very nervous. A very difficult situation to find yourself in is the DUI checkpoint that law enforcement officials operate every now and then in Orlando, Florida. These checkpoints are designed to get as many drivers off the road who might be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Commonly used defenses to a drunk driving charge

Getting behind the wheel of your car after you've been drinking is never a good decision. Sometimes you think that you haven't had too much to drink when in reality, you are above the legal limit. Other times, it's obvious you've had too much to drink, but you still make a bad decision. Either way, it's best to avoid driving after drinking so you don't find yourself facing driving under the influence charges in Florida.

Taking a look at the ignition interlock device

Have you ever gotten into someone's car and watched the driver breathe into a device that is plugged into his or her dashboard? If so, you have witnessed the driver taking a Breathalyzer test before being allowed to drive. The device the driver used is called an ignition interlock device and it is a common item administered to people who are charged with driving under the influence in Orlando, Florida.

A first time DUI is still worth fighting

In many instances, a driver's first DUI charge is a misdemeanor. However, despite the fact that misdemeanor charges are quite common, they are not a charges to take lightly. The good news is that a misdemeanor DUI charge may not entail jail time as part of a sentence. Still, a driver who receives a misdemeanor DUI conviction can find it surprisingly costly.

Florida woman accused of erratic drunken behavior

Drunken driving is rarely a good idea, but if a driver does get pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving, it is always wise to avoid acting out towards the officer on the scene. A Florida woman recently learned this lesson the hard way and now faces charges after some allegedly salacious behavior during a DUI stop.
