DUI Lawyers Aggressively Defending the Rights of the Accused
What Are the DUI Laws in St. Pete, Florida?
DUI is defined as operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated or with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or greater. However, this is not the only DUI law in Florida. There are other laws that may apply to your case, including:
- Underage DUI: If you are under the age of 21, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a BAC of .02 or greater.
- Aggravating factors: In Florida, the law imposes more serious penalties on offenders in DUI cases with certain aggravating factors. Examples of aggravating factors that could lead to enhanced penalties include a BAC of .15 or higher and the presence of a minor in your car at the time of your arrest.
