With Super Bowl Sunday coming up (February 5, 2017), you probably already know that DUI enforcement will be the top priority of South Florida police agencies.
You can expect to see DUI checkpoints, increased law enforcement presence on the road, and even the presence of law enforcement vehicles in the parking lots of bars and restaurants.
Remember - when you are arrested for DUI in Florida, you only have 10 days to preserve your driving privilege. Failure to act quickly could result in a 6-12 month driver's license suspension!
Florida was recently ranked as the 23rd toughest state when it comes to DUI penalties. In other words, Florida's DUI penalties are tougher than the penalties imposed in more than half of the country! Don't take chances.
DUI in Florida carries mandatory penalties. These penalties include fines, probation periods, significant court costs, driver's license suspensions, and worst of all - a mandatory conviction on your record that can never be sealed or expunged.
While you should undoubtedly utilize taxis, designated drivers, or ride-sharing apps, people will inevitable drive after having a couple of drinks. If you are stopped and arrested for DUI this Sunday, contact The Law Offices of Eric M. Matheny, P.A. for a thorough and professional evaluation of your case.
