Is your license on the line because of a DUI?

Your driver's license may be something that you have held dear for many years.

As a result, if you lose your license, you could face a number of setbacks.

Florida drug sweep leads to 7 arrests

A 51-year-old Florida man and six other suspects were taken into custody on Jan. 15 when detectives and agents assigned to the Unified Drug Enforcement Strike Team simultaneously executed seven search warrants in the Silver Springs Shore area.

Accident in Florida leaves one person dead

On Jan. 17, a Volkswagen sedan traveling north in the southbound lane of the Don Shula Expressway collided with a Jeep and a police car.

Authorities say that the driver of the sedan was a man and that the officer injured in the crash was a woman.

Pedestrians are especially vulnerable to injury in accidents

When a car strikes a person who is outside of the vehicle, the results can be catastrophic. A pedestrian is especially vulnerable to injuries in the event of an accident, and even a low-speed collision can result in serious injuries or death. The person behind the wheel of the vehicle is often to blame for these types of accidents. 

Despite public distrust, red-light cameras save lives

Red-light running is a factor in hundreds of crashes every year in Florida and across the U.S. In 2016, more than 800 people died in red-light running crashes, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. There is one way to reduce this trend, however. And it's through the installation of red-light camera systems.

Interlock devices may prevent DUI but are also distracting

Thirty-four states, including Florida, require ignition interlock devices to be installed in the cars of DUI offenders. Over the past decade, the number of IIDs installed has gone from 133,000 to 350,000. These devices are simply breath tests connected to a car's ignition, and they keep a car from starting if the driver turns out to be drunk. They have prevented thousands of attempts made by drunk drivers to start their cars.
