Know the penalties for drunk driving in Florida

The holiday season is here, which means that people will begin hosting parties to celebrate. If you are planning on having alcohol this season, make sure that you find a suitable way home. This might include a ride-share, a designated driver or public transportation. If you don't find another option to get home, you might face criminal charges for drunk driving.

Drunk driving wrecks lead to many legal complications

When a person is too impaired to drive, they are going to make poor decisions. These might not have an immediate impact on the driver. There is always a chance that one wrong move will lead to a crash. This is a situation that can lead to some very serious complications, including criminal charges in some cases. The circumstances of the crash and your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) percentage can have an effect on how things are handled in the case.

What you should know about implied consent in Florida

A police officer who has reason to think that you are driving while intoxicated might initiate a traffic stop. Once they speak to you, they might ask that you take a breath test to determine your blood alcohol content (BAC). This might be a challenging request for you to handle because you want to cooperate, but you don't want to provide the sample. This is understandable.

Start your drunk driving defense right away

Drunk driving charges are hard because you have to think about two different processes when you are charged with this crime. The criminal side has to do with the punishments you will face if you are convicted. The administrative process deals with the loss of your driver's license since you were accused of driving while you were impaired.

Know what to expect when you're accused of drunk driving

There are campaigns constantly playing messages on television and the radio reminding people that it is against the law to drive drunk. Billboards and other advertisements relay this message. With all of these reminders, it is a good idea to heed them and find someone to handle the driving if you plan to go out drinking.

Raise questions about the drunk driving case against you

Any driver who gets out on the road should make sure they are in the proper condition to drive a vehicle. When they aren't, others can suffer harm if there is an accident. This is the reason why drunk driving is illegal. If you have been consuming alcohol, make sure that you find another way home. This can help prevent you from having to deal with a criminal charge for driving drunk.

Ignition interlocks are sometimes used in drunk driving cases

One of the possible penalties that people have to face for drunk driving convictions is having to use an ignition interlock. These devices are meant to determine the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of the driver before the vehicle will move. The goal is to prevent future instances of impaired driving.

Reasonable suspicion, probable cause and drunk driving charges

Police officers have to try to keep the roads safe for everyone. Drunk drivers are a public safety hazard, so officers need to try to keep these individuals off the roads. One way to do this is to pull people over if they are suspected of driving drunk.

Drunk driving crashes can be devastating

Driving after you have a few drinks likely isn't going to be one of the best decisions you've made. These situations can come with some very serious consequences, so you need to take the time to ensure that you think carefully about what you are going to do if you have alcohol and don't have someone to drive you back home.
