Are drinking laws in america too strict?

Underage drinking is an age-old subject that receives a great deal of debate. Many Floridians might agree that the current age of 21 is fitting for drinking laws, but others argue that it should be lowered. There are a plethora of arguments to each side of this topic, but the issue remains clear: thousands of Americans face severe penalties for a drinking decision made long ago.

You cannot avoid hearing about the dangers of DUI driving in Florida. There are warnings online, on TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, billboards and signs everywhere you look.

Of course, being convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs results in an automatic revocation of your driving privileges. Whatever the reason why you lost your license, you are no doubt in a hurry to get it back. So what do you need to do in order to do so?
