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.
Fort Myers is typically a pretty safe place for Florida residents. However, like other metropolitan areas throughout the country, deadly auto accidents occur occasionally and, in some cases, law enforcement officials can be quick to attempt to pin the blame on the alleged intoxication of a driver involved.
