How We Can Help

Providing Personalized DUI Legal Services

In Florida, it is illegal to operate a private motor vehicle (this includes cars, motorcycles, trucks, boats, etc.) with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher.

The state also employs a “zero-tolerance” policy for those under the age of 21, meaning you can be arrested for and charged with underage DUI if your BAC is 0.02% or higher. Additionally, you cannot operate a commercial vehicle, such as a delivery truck or taxi, with a BAC of 0.04% or higher.
