A DUI charge isn't just a personal problem for the time-being. It can cost you your current job, while also haunting your future career plans. A few weeks ago, a Greyhound bus driver was arrested for DUI. The bus driver was caught swerving all over I-95 in the Central FL area, while he was driving a group of people from Jacksonville to Miami.
Last weekend to enjoy Summer starts right now, but you should probably keep your eyes open all weekend. You can expect law enforcement to be out in full force looking to catch people drinking and driving.
No matter how many public service announcements play on TV or on the radio, some people just won't take drinking and driving seriously.
DUI doesn't always mean that a driver was under the influence of alcohol. Take for example two Pittsburgh Steelers who were pulled over yesterday. Running backs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount were charged with possession of marijuana following a routine traffic stop. Bell was the driver of the car and was charged with driving under the influence of marijuana, although both men were in possession of marijuana. The traffic officer who pulled the car over noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. The officer found a 20 gram bag of marijuana inside the car. The DUI charge is a misdemeanor. Both Bell and Blount will receive summonses in the mail that will include the date on which they must appear in court.
It's likely that the opinion of most adults in Orange City and throughout the rest of Florida echoes that of Americans across the country generally on the specific topic of young drivers and drinking.
You don't have to watch the news or commercials, or even see drivers being pulled over to understand what is going on. It's common knowledge that law enforcement is always cracking down on drunk drivers. But with summer down to its final weeks and Labor Day just around the corner, the FHP (Florida Highway Patrol) is focusing its attention on drunk drivers for the next two weeks. It's all part of the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign that will run through on September 1 (Labor Day).
If there are two things you can count on during a sports league's offseason, it's rumors about player movement and some players getting in trouble with the law. Here are two interesting DUI cases involving players from the NFL and NBA.
When you are arrested for a DUI you are in for a long, uphill battle to a return to your normal life. You will be kicking yourself for being so irresponsible, but you have to move past that and face the legal task at hand.
When people hear DUI they think it's the end of their driving world. No matter how serious the charge is, and believe me a DUI is a very serious charge, you must not lose hope. But at the same time, you can't take it lightly either.
Memorial Day weekend is all about traditions. BBQs, vacation, honoring our troops...and DUI checkpoints. Just this weekend alone in the Orlando, Central Florida area there have been over 100 car accidents that may be linked to alcohol use and also over 50 people have been arrested for DUI.
