What are the penalties for boating under the influence?

Plenty of people in Florida enjoy going out onto the water. Whether it’s to enjoy the view, to feel the wind on your face, or to have a fun gathering with friends or family, boating can offer you a lot of fun options. However, don’t drink while you operate the boat, because this falls under the umbrella of DUI offenses and can net you some hefty penalties.

How many ways will your DUI impact your life?

Florida drivers who are hit with drunk driving charges could find their lives changed very sharply and suddenly. Not only do these charges often come with high financial penalties, but you may face other consequences that can temporarily, or even permanently, change your life.

How do breath tests work?

Determining whether someone is sober or not can actually be a bit tricky. Someone who can walk in a straight line or recite the alphabet backwards may still have a blood alcohol score that’s above the legal limit, and police need a solid way of being able to tell when that happens.

What to really expect when you get pulled over after drinking

There's often a disconnect in our brains between the idea of driving after we've had a couple of drinks and the reality of what happens when we get pulled over by an officer of the law. You will stand a much better chance of directing this dangerous situation to the best possible outcome if you remain calm and stay in control.

What does Florida’s implied consent law mean?

Florida drivers may not be aware of it, but every time you get on the road, you have automatically given police consent to take a urine, blood or breath test if they arrest you for a DUI. This is called Florida’s implied consent law, and it impacts all drivers.
