DRIVING UNDER INFLUENCE – FORT LAUDERDALE / MIAMI
Driving under the influence, also known as DUI, is a serious crime that can have the potential to totally change a motorist’s life, if they are convicted. DUIs are most commonly issued when a driver has been found operating a motor vehicle – car, boat, motorcycle, etc and sometimes bicycles – while under being under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
When this happens, accidents may occur, which can compound the charges that have been filed against the motorist. A south florida drunk driving accident can cause you to pay very expensive fees and fines, quite often perform an abundance of community service, have your driver’s license revoked, or even be sent to jail. Penalties often vary based on where the driver lives, the age of the driver at fault, the level of intoxication and number of previous charges. Regardless of where the drunk driving accident took place, the penalties are among the most severe in the nation.
