DUI Laws in Florida
In Florida, driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher is strictly illegal. Florida also has a Zero Tolerance policy for drivers under the age of 21. This means underage drivers must not drive with a BAC of 0.02%.
In addition, Florida has implied consent laws, which require all drivers to submit to chemical testing. If you are pulled over and you refuse to take a breath, blood, or urine test, your license may be suspended for up to a year.
Penalties for a first DUI conviction may involve:
- Fines of up to $1,000
- Prison sentences of up to 6 months
- Installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID)
- Other penalties at the court’s discretion
For subsequent DUI offenses, you may face more severe penalties, such as stiffer fines and longer prison sentences. It is important to hire a knowledgeable Jacksonville criminal defense attorney to defend your rights and guide you through the Florida legal system.
