When Can Someone Be Arrested for DUI in Florida?
Florida Statutes §316.193 a person is guilty of driving under the influence of impairing substances
when they have a BAC (blood alcohol content) reading of 0.08% or higher,
or any traceable amount of impairing drug is in their system (0.01 or higher).
The penalties for conviction of this crime can be severe in the state of
Florida, depending on any prior convictions, and various circumstances
under which you are charged. For example, the penalties will increase
if your BAC is found to be at 0.15% or higher, or if there is a minor
under the age of 18 in the vehicle at the time of your arrest. For a first
conviction, you could face imprisonment, fines, probation, court-ordered
community service, vehicle impoundment, driver license revocation, and
multiple convictions the penalties will greatly increase.
