Being under the influence of alcohol could mean trouble

With summer break in full swing, it might be a good idea for students who are spending time in Florida to become familiar with the state's alcohol laws.

Even working as a server in an establishment that serves alcohol could mean trouble.

What are some of the consequences of drunk driving?

It is a crime to drive while impaired in Florida and all other states because it endangers the lives of the intoxicated driver, his or her passengers and the public. Being convicted for drunk driving can ruin a person's future. However, a conviction can only occur if, and when, the prosecution can prove the driver's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Until then, he or she will remain innocent in the eyes of the law.

DUI and other drinking crimes not to be seen as summer fun

Summer is the time for many students to escape from classes and studies and focus on fun and freedom. Unfortunately, peer pressure and other factors cause many teenagers in Fort Myers to show their ability to consume large amounts of alcohol. They spend fun-filled days at outdoor events, BBQs and on sunny Florida beaches. Some of them get carried away by the excitement and overlook the fact that drinking and driving on the road or the water can lead to DUI charges.

How can you improve your chances of getting a DUI expunged?

Having a criminal record can jeopardize the future of anyone in Florida.

Fortunately, in some cases, it is possible to have a DUI expunged.

A 45-year-old man in Florida recently learned that driving while impaired is against the law regardless of the type of vehicle used.

They responded to the scene and located the driver who was suspected of drunk driving of a golf cart.

What to know about first-time drunk driving charges

No one in Florida intends to go out and be arrested for driving under the influence. Many times, drivers are not sure how much alcohol they can consume and still be able to drive lawfully. Most know what the legal blood alcohol limit is, but it is not unusual for drivers to get behind the wheel because they feel fine and think they are below the limit. Regardless, being pulled over and charged with drunk driving for the first time can leave a driver with many questions.

Florida driver charged with DUI and child endangerment

Exposing children to the risks of being in a vehicle with an impaired driver could have severe consequences.

One such driver will likely be exploring his defense options after a recent arrest on charges that include DUI, child neglect, resisting arrest and some controlled substance-related charges.

DUI suspect dances through the field sobriety test

A Florida man was in the proverbial wrong place at the wrong time when he was recently arrested. Deputies say they came across a 33-year-old man who was sleeping in his pickup truck in Holiday. They allege they noticed the brake lights were on and found that the engine was running and the driver was asleep behind the wheel, but he had his foot on the brake. According to a police report, the DUI suspect thought he was in Clearwater, and he was under the impression that it was about 10 p.m. while the police report indicates that it was 2 a.m.
