Florida man arrested after drinking, driving lawnmower

Getting a DUI is not the way you want to end your vacation, but if you've traveled to Ocala and have had too much to drink, it could be how you end yours. Florida's law enforcement is fairly strict on drinking and driving, particularly because of the high number of tourists. With so many people coming from out of the state, there's no reason to add further risks by allowing drivers to drink, too.

A strong defense can help your DUI case

A DUI can quickly change your life. It's not just the fines or court dates that affect you, it's also the stigma of having a DUI on your record. You may find it harder to get a job or be unable to get the loans you need for school. You might struggle with social relationships, especially if your friends or family have been negatively affected by DUIs in the past.

Does Florida have per se drugged driving laws?

Even though the terminology directly states, "driving under the influence," many people believe that a DUI only applies to those who drink alcohol and then drive. The truth is that you can get a DUI for being under the influence of drugs as well. Those drugs may or may not be legally purchased.
