KALIS & KLEIMAN Remind You to Drink Responsibly
Davie, Florida – The Attorneys at the Law Firm of KALIS & KLEIMAN remind you to please drive with care this Holiday season, drink responsibly, and be aware of Florida DUI law if you do.
Important to know is that Florida DUI law is based on impairment of the driver - which some may not associate with being "drunk". Under 316.193(1) (b), one is guilty of DUI if they are found to have a breath-alcohol level of .08, and they are driving or in actual or physical control of a vehicle. When conducting a stop, a law enforcement officer is trained to look for certain indicia of impairment including but not limited to flushed face, glassy/watery eyes, and odor of alcohol in determining whether a physical or chemical test of breath should be administered. Some individuals may not associate the above physical signs with being intoxicated, even though it could be an indication of impairment. Further important to know is that under Fla. Stat. 316.1939, one who was informed that, if he or she refused to submit to such a test, his or her privilege to operate a motor vehicle would be suspended for a period of 1 year or, (or in the case of a second or subsequent refusal, for a period of 18 months) will have their license suspended accordingly.
In the unfortunate scenario that you or someone you know is charged with DUI, KALIS & KLEIMAN attorney Aaron Karger has the experience to investigate, challenge and defend the charge. Mr. Karger will first look at whether the police had reasonable suspicion to suspect DUI or stop your car. If there was not reasonable suspicion, your charges may be dismissed or reduced to a moving violation. He will also investigate police behavior during the stop. Did the police explain the reason for the stop? Did the individual that was stopped clearly understand their rights? Mr. Karger will also aggressively move to suppress evidence found during the stop if there is a good faith basis to believe improper or illegal police procedures were at play.
The probability for errors in an arrest is high and someone charged with a DUI should pursue the best possible defense. If you have been arrested for driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated, it is extremely important to hire an experienced DUI attorney to protect your legal rights.
