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.

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.

Understanding ignition interlock devices

One of the many things that you might be concerned with in the event that you are ever charged with a drunk driving offense is losing your driving privileges for some period of time. Depending upon the nature of your situation, this may happen but the use of an ignition interlock device may make it possible for you to start driving again sooner than you could if you did not use an IID. Understanding how an ignition interlock device works is important for you in this situation.

The walk-and-turn field sobriety test

Has your spouse, friend or neighbor been arrested for and charged with drunken driving in Florida? Or, have you yourself been charged with an impaired driving offense? In either case, you will likely be wanting to learn about how to defend against these charges either for yourself or in support of someone else. One element to a drunk driving defense may involve inaccurate test results during the arrest process. This may include the field sobriety tests that are used.

Medical emergency results in DUI arrest

Many things might lead someone in Florida to be arrested and charged with drunk driving or drugged driving. No two situations are generally the same and some may not even be initiated by an actual traffic stop. An example of this can be seen in a recent case involving a man from Cape Coral.

Did your teen ignore your warnings about drunk driving?

Did you receive a phone call saying that the police took your teen into custody for drunk driving? The mix of emotions when you got that call probably ranged from anger because your teen failed to heed your warnings about the dangers of drunk driving and relief that he or she survived the experience - hopefully without suffering any injuries or hurting anyone else.

The horizontal gaze nystagmus test

If you have been charged with drunk driving in Florida, you will want to be sure and educate yourself about the process so you can make appropriate decisions for your defense. One of the things you may want to learn about is the accuracy of the tests used in your arrest process. This includes not just any chemical test you may have taken but the field sobriety tests that you may have been asked to participate in as well.

What is the one-legged stand FSB?

Have you been charged with an impaired driving offense in Florida? Perhaps you know someone who is facing this type of criminal charge.
