Charged With Driving Under The Influence Of Drugs?
In Florida, a driver can be arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) if he or she is impaired by alcohol or drugs. A person need not be under the influence of alcohol to be charged with a crime.
While alcohol-related impairment can be measured by a blood alcohol concentration (BAC), with the legal limit being .08 percent, demonstrating that a person is impaired by drugs is not as simple. This subjectivity may or may not work in your favor, because a police officer does not need hard evidence to arrest you on suspicion of being impaired by a controlled substance.
You can even be charged with DUI for driving safely while taking medicine from your doctor. A conviction — even an arrest — can cause long-term loss of your driver’s license, so it is important to have defense representation.
