Drunk Driving Vs. Impaired Driving Know the Difference & Your Rights

Drunk Driving vs. Impaired Driving

DUI Defense Attorney in Ocala, Florida

The legal BAC limit in the state of Florida as well as throughout the United States for drivers over the age of 21 is 0.08%. For commercial drivers it is 0.04%, and for drivers under the age of 21, it is 0.02%. If your BAC (blood alcohol content) has been tested, and you have an alcohol content less than 0.08%, then it is important to know that you may not be excused from charges. You could still be arrested and charged with impaired driving if the police officer believes that you are unable to safely operate your vehicle, and has evidence of this reality.

There are a number of different actions that police officers can use as evidence to warrant an arrest, and to pursue a conviction of a DUI crime regardless if your BAC is found to be less than 0.08%.

Such evidence can include the following among others:

  • Inability to perform field sobriety tests
  • Reckless driving
  • Slurred speech
  • Lack of focus
  • Lack of coordination

If you are arrested and charged with the crime of DUI, then you need to ensure that you have strong representation on your side that can help you effectively pursue your rights, your goals, and your desires regarding the outcome.
