Understanding Florida's ignition interlock requirements, Part 2

Last week, we discussed an issue that might be on the minds of Florida residents currently facing the prospect of charges for driving under the influence. More often than not, driver's license suspension is an automatic penalty associated with DUI conviction.

Getting a license reinstated after a DUI conviction in Florida

Among the many consequences associated with a conviction for driving under the influence, losing the ability to legally drive may be the most damaging.

Choosing whether to submit to a breath test or not can be a worrying decision. The results are not always accurate and blowing over the state's legal limit, 0.08 in Florida, can land you with DUI charges. However, breath test refusal can earn you automatic license suspension.
