  • Can someone be charged? (DUI in Florida)

    Can someone in Florida have charges brought against them if they were driving and involved in a accident. The friend was thrown from car because they was not wearing a seat belt, and both under the influence?

    I wish to inform you that if the driver was drunk then he can be charged for DUI in Florida. The fine for first conviction is generally $250 to $500, community service 50 hours, probation 180 days, etc. If the person thrown out of the car was not wearing seat belt then the penalty is $30.

      Absolutely they can. Especially if they were driving under the influence, and they caused an accident. They could also be held responsible for any injuries sustained by any parties or passengers involved in the accident.

        In Florida, the State has to prove that you were behind the wheel of the car or vehicle to prove you were DUI. If there is a wheel witness then you can face penalties such as a fine, court costs, community service, counseling, DUI classes, impoundment, and ignition interlock among other penalties.
