DUI on I-4

Interstate 4 or more commonly know to Central Florida residents as I-4 is one of the most used roads in Florida and rush hour can be a pain. Many people also get arrested for DUI's while driving on this roadway. It is typically at night that the police are out actively looking for drivers who seem to be impaired based on the driving pattern. However, it can also be the simplest thing such as speeding, no headlights on or any other common traffic violation that can result in the police pulling you over. If you are stopped and the police smell alcohol on your breath they will ask you to conduct field sobriety exercises and then make a determination if you are impaired.

4th of July Holiday!

Police will be out there looking for DUI cases. Do not drink and drive this holiday unless you want to end up behind bars.At the Law Office of Corey Cohen we are closed for the 4th of July so that our staff can enjoy time with family and friends.   While the office is closed you can still call our office to speak to an attorney anytime on the 4th of July.   Many of you will go to parties or a place where alcohol is served.  If you are stopped by a police officer for a DUI and you feel like you will fail the field sobriety exercises tell them that you will not participate in any tests or exercises and you want to speak to an attorney right away.   If you come across law enforcement this holiday call me at 407-246-0066 and I will be happy to discuss your various legal options.   

New Law for Flashing Headlights

As of January 1st 2013 it is now legal to flash your headlights to warn other motorists about speed traps and police in the area.  You no longer will receive a traffic ticket for this which may times led to the arrest of individuals for DUI and other various crimes. 

New Product Claims to Prevent "False Positive" Breathalyzer Results

An attorney, former state patrol sergeant and plastic surgeon recently teamed up to create a new product aimed at reducing the rates of "false positive" breathalyzer tests. False positive tests occur, according to this team, when alcohol in the mouth leads to "inaccurate field breath tests."

Breathalyzers Face Continued Scrutiny in DUI Cases

A Driving Under the Influence (DUI) charge is determined based on blood alcohol content (BAC) levels, but what if the tool used to measure these levels is not properly calibrated? Courts across the country are facing this question, and one court in Florida reviewing DUI cases refuses to admit breathalyzer results from faulty machines.

The Implications of Refusing a DUI Breath Test in Florida

In Florida, drivers stopped by police on suspicion of driving under the influence do not have to submit to blood, breath or urine testing that measures their blood-alcohol concentration. Refusing a DUI breath test carries significant consequences, though, in addition to any penalties imposed for impaired driving.
