Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

Drunk Driving in South Florida Can Be an Embarrassing and Serious Charge. Miami Defense Lawyer Rier Jordan Can Help Turn the DUI Wrong Around

For many people, being stopped on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be their one and only run-in with the law. The State of Florida - like every other state in the country - mandates that anyone operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or more can be arrested for DUI. There's no surefire way to know what your blood alcohol content is when you're out to dinner with friends or having a drink with coworkers. For some it can mean several alcoholic beverages - for others it's a single glass of wine consumed on an empty stomach.

In Miami, Fort Lauderdale and other South Florida municipalities, authorities take an aggressive stance toward stopping drunk drivers. If you're stopped, you'll likely be asked to perform a roadside sobriety test or submit to a chemical test, such as a breathalyzer, to determine your blood alcohol content. If you're arrested, state law requires that your license be suspended for at least six months (though you may apply for a hardship license within 10 days of your arrest, which will retain driving privileges to and from work, school and essential errands). By virtue of you holding a Florida driver's license, you've agreed to submit to a chemical blood alcohol content test like a breathalyzer, blood test or, in rare cases, a urine sample. Refusing to participate in such a test will result in the automatic suspension of your driver's license for a year. The decision to take a test like this is individual, but refusing can sometimes defense strategies.

If you've been arrested for DUI, contacting an attorney whose well-versed in Florida's complicated DUI laws is your best chance for beating a conviction.
