Florida Drinking and Driving Facts

The facts about drinking and driving are that DUI convictions can have lifelong implications. The Orlando DUI attorneys at TK Law defend numerous Florida DUI cases each year. Legal representation for a DUI charge can be the difference between a conviction and a lesser charge or total dismissal of an infraction.

In addition to aggressively defending our clients, we make them well aware of drinking and driving facts including statistics, penalties, laws, and what to do if they are either stopped by law enforcement or involved in a DUI accident.

Florida’s DUI-DWI laws are clear on the low tolerance the state has for any form of impaired driving. This is understandable when considering the tragic consequences people endure because of DUI-related property damage, wrecks and fatalities.

Florida Drinking and Driving Statistics

One person – a child, father, mother or friend – died every 51 minutes in an alcohol-related crash nationwide in 2012, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In our state alone, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) reports in 2012:

  • 17,258 actual and suspected alcohol-related crashes (9,867 confirmed alcohol-related crashes and 7,391 suspected)
  • 2,430 traffic deaths – with just under 1,000 directly connected to actual or suspected alcohol use
  • 12,066 actual or suspected alcohol-related injuries in crashes

You can also be charged with DUI in Florida if law enforcement suspects you of driving under the influence of marijuana or prescription drugs. Florida DHSMV reports:

  • 1,798 actual or suspected drug-related crashes in 2012
  • 200 actual or suspected drug-related traffic deaths
  • 1,435 actual or suspected drug-related traffic injuries

Florida Drinking and Driving Penalties

The accomplished TK Law attorneys consistently research the latest cases and review changes in Florida law to keep you most up-to-date with Florida DUI penalties. Most recently, a DUI conviction ranges anywhere from eight hours in jail and $500 in fines for a first offense to $5,000 in fines and five years in prison for a fourth offense or higher.

In addition, DUI convictions can involve probation, community service, vehicle impoundment, DUI school and other requirements aimed at cutting down DUI arrests. It is important when charged with DUI that a competent attorney defend your case.
