Plan ahead for holiday DUI enforcement

Many Florida residents are actively planning events over the upcoming Fourth of July holiday. With the holiday landing on a Tuesday this year, celebrations may well begin the prior weekend and last for several days. While this is a normal part of the summer, it is also important for people to consider their transportation needs as part of their planning in order to avoid troubles with a potential drunk driving arrest.

Facts of case in dispute during trial

People who have been charged not only with driving under the influence offenses but also other crimes related to an accident that may have transpired can face complicated trials with potentially extreme consequences. It is important for them to remember that even if chemical tests show that their blood alcohol content wa above the legal limit when an accident occurred that it does not necesarily mean the accident was totally their fault. Such is the case for one 42-year-old man from Golden Gate Estates today.

Drinking and boating creates the perfect storm for an accident

Warmer temperatures mean getting out on the water for many Floridians. Taking the boat out for a day of sunshine, relaxation and time with family and friends could be your idea of paradise. You might even have a few drinks just like many of the other boaters out on the water with you.

Man maintains innocence in drunk driving death

After a drunk driving arrest, drivers in Florida may face a myriad of penalties. From fines to potential loss of driving privileges and more, a single impaired driving offense may have long-lasting consequences for people. When such an arrest involves an accident, especially one in which people are seriously injured or killed, the potential penalties become far more severe. This is exactly what one man in Naples is grappling with today after an accident that took place just a couple of weeks before Christmas 2015.

Do Florida police wear body cameras?

If you have ever been stopped by an officer in Florida, you may have noticed that they were wearing a body camera. The use of these cameras by law enforcement officials has been increasing and may be one avenue via which defendants get new insight into their defense options. The video footage captured by a police camera may expose errors in how an officer conducted an investigation or managed an arrest such as when pursuing a potential drunk driving arrest.

The damage a DUI can do to your college life

Since middle school, maybe sooner, you have learned about the dangers of drinking and driving. In your driver education classes, you certainly saw films or heard lectures about the consequences of drunk driving and the tragedy of DUI accidents. Maybe your college has even sponsored events to promote responsible drinking.

Florida residents ideally should be  able to trust that other drivers will act responsibly even if only to avoid injury to themselves let alone for the safety and benefit of others. While most people do this, sadly not all are so focused on being safe and careful. When an accident happens, people involved should then be able to trust that justice can be served. An accident that happened roughly two and a half years ago has recently made its way to a criminal trial.
