Driving under influence or DUI Fort Myers FL is as much a concern as driving while texting. In most states, a first-time DUI is a misdemeanor that is punishable by a maximum jail-time of six months. If it is not too bad for you, property damages, physical injury and even fatalities attributed to it, and other factors, could worsen the severity of the punishment.
Whilst a first offense may seem to the naïve too trouble-free to mind, in many cases, the offender gets snarled up in various legal impediments, and their implications.
In Florida, DUI Fort Myers FL is charged to motorists caught who register a 0.8%-or-higher blood alcohol concentration (BAC), regardless of them being impaired or not. Florida laws further provide for that the charge of DUI is not limited to the actual act of driving, but also to the operation or physical control of a vehicle under a certain degree of influence of alcohol, drugs or the combination of these; so, the same may be charged to a substance-influenced-motorist with keys in hand and whose hands are on the steering wheel of a car in a parking lot, even if the car has not been moved a single inch.
