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.
