When you are pulled over or arrested for an alleged offense of driving
under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), there are certain steps that you
should take, and there are others that you should definitely avoid. Miami
DUI Attorney Justin Beckham, of Beckham Solis, Attorneys at Law, recently
went over these DUI dos and don'ts on The Sports Animal radio station
(940 AM WINZ). Mr. Beckham was interviewed on the station's
Community News and Review Show on Saturday, January 11, 2014. The show's airtime is every Saturday
from 10 to 11 in the morning.
When you are pulled over for suspected DUI, it is vital that you have a
clear understanding of your rights and of the steps you can take to reduce
your chances of a DUI conviction. Driving under the influence of alcohol
or drugs is a very serious offense, so these types of charges should not
be taken lightly—even if you know you are not actually guilty of
the crime. Florida law defines DUI as controlling a vehicle while one's
normal abilities are impaired by alcohol and/or drugs, or when one has
a blood alcohol concentration level of 0.08% or above.
On the Community News and Review Show, those tuning in get to hear interviews
with community leaders who discuss many different types of topics, according
to the radio station's website. The show largely targets entrepreneurs,
small business owners, consumers and others who are involved in the business world.
