Under 21 DUI in Florida
Miami Drunk Driving Lawyers
If you are under 21 have been charged with
DUI, you could be facing frightening and serious consequences. It is illegal
for a person under 21 to purchase and consume alcohol, much less get behind
the wheel of a vehicle while under the influence. The state of Florida
has a zero tolerance policy for those who are under 21 who are believed
to have been operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Drivers under suspicion of DUI must submit to
breath & blood tests. As a part of the zero tolerance policy for underage drivers, the maximum
blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.02%, far lower than the 0.08% for drivers
at 21 or older. Essentially, you could be arrested by consuming just one
ounce of alcohol.
Penalties for Underage DUI
If you are found guilty of underage
DUI, the penalties imposed will have a heavy impact on your future. The punishments
for under 21 drivers on a first offense will include:
- Mandatory 6 month license suspension

or blood tests, police errors or rights violations, faulty testing units
