Thousands of Florida residents will be taking to the roads during the holiday season around Christmas and New Year's Day this year to visit family members and friends and celebrate. Many of these get-togethers will include alcohol consumption. By now most people know that it is a bad idea to get behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking alcohol, but hundreds of Florida residents will still likely face a DUI charge this holiday season.
It doesn't matter what law enforcement officials accuse you of doing. You enjoy the same rights under the United States Constitution.
Every year thousands of Florida residents go through the criminal justice system. Some face misdemeanor charges, while others face more serious felony charges. However, regardless of the severity of the charge in any given case, every person who is charged with a criminal offense has rights to protect. One of those rights is the right to a trial in front of one's peers.
When you head out on the road, your goal is likely to get to your intended destination. During the course of trying to reach this goal, you also want to drive as safely as possible. Unfortunately, other drivers do not always put safety as their top priority, and they may also allow their emotions to get the better of them.
