In the state of Florida, DUI (Driving Under the Influence) laws require strict penalties for drivers found guilty of driving while intoxicated, whether it be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The penalties of a DUI can be significant, both in time, effort, and money to the convicted offender, including administrative penalties, like fines and suspension of driver’s license, to criminal penalties, such as jail time, probation, community service and more. Repeat DUI offenders, if convicted, are subject to increasingly harsher punishments. Learn more about the penalties that await DUI offenders in Florida with this helpful chart.
