As the holidays are approaching our calendars will fill up with parties. This is a good time to remind you that of the dangers, and costs, of drinking and driving. A conviction for driving under the influence (DUI) has serious consequences. A Florida DUI conviction comes with greater civil and criminal penalties that many other states. If you have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 or higher when stopped by law enforcement, you will be charged with a DUI.
