Florida residents who think about people being charged with drug crimes might not generally think about successful white collar executives being in this position. That is quite the opposite of the stereotype of a drug offense defendant. However, anyone can be accused of illegal activity involving drugs. In fact, an investigation that allegedly lasted for two years recently resulted in the arrest of a man who was the executive director of Florida Hospital Oceanside.
If police pull you over, it's understandable that you might be nervous. You may feel guilty even if you know you haven't done anything wrong. You don't want to do anything that would arouse suspicion or make police think you have something to hide.
Many Florida residents may be aware of the continued effort by advocacy groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving and believe that the message about how dangerous drinking and driving really can be is getting through to people. While that may be true in some cases, there are still far too many people out there who have yet to embrace this reality as they continue to make the choice to drive after drinking alcohol.
Have you been charged with an impaired driving offense in Florida? Perhaps you know someone who is facing this type of criminal charge. In making decisions about how to approach a defense, it is important to understand the different elements that went into the arrest. One of these may well be field sobriety tests.
Every time you get into your vehicle in Florida, you know that there always exists the potential that you may be involved in an accident. Certainly you cannot let that prevent you from living your life but being aware of accident volumes and trends is important. Data released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that most of 2016 was deadlier than 2015 on U.S. roads and highways.
