Blowing Over .15

Did you know that Florida, like other states, is very strict about driving under the influence (DUI)? There are serious consequences if you are arrested for and convicted of drunk driving. Your future is at stake, especially if you are arrested and charged with driving with a blood alcohol level (BAC) of .15 or higher.

Consequences For a DUI With A BAC Over .15

The punishments for driving with a BAC over .15 or higher include fines, jail time, community service, and losing of the privilege to drive.

  • For a first conviction, the fine ranges between $1,000 and $2,000 and a maximum sentence of nine months in jail. A person convicted of DUI will also do 50 hours of community service and spend up to one year of probation. The driver’s license will be suspended from six months to one year.
  • A second DUI conviction for .15 BAC, results in a fine between $2,000 and $4,000 and is punishable by up to one year in jail. A person will lose his or her privilege to drive for up to five years if the two convictions are within five years of each other.
  • The penalties continue to get worse for a third conviction and worse. In addition, a person may lose his or her driver’s license from 10 days after the arrest until the trial, unless he or she prevails at an administrative hearing. Also, a person convicted of DUI will pay much higher car insurance premiums once he or she can drive again.
