Bicyclist Charged with DUI

A few weeks ago, a Port Charlotte man on a bike failed to yield the right of way to an approaching van and was hit by the vehicle and knocked off his bicycle, according to Florida Highway Patrol troopers. The 51-year-old bicyclist sustained minor injuries and was hospitalized, while the car driver was unhurt. Not only was the bicyclist deemed responsible for the crash, but officials said that they learned the man was under the influence. While this man was cited for violating the right of way and failing to have a light on his bike (the accident occurred at night), he has also been arrested and charged with a DUI.

DUI accidents are already a serious matter, where you can sustain injuries, and incur the costs of medical care and vehicle repair. But if you are further deemed to be impaired, then you could be looking at years in jail or prison, plus thousands of dollars more in fines. With a suspended license, your mobility and freedom could be further limited. Worst of all, a DUI conviction would mean being stuck with a criminal record wherever you go.

If you find yourself with charged with a DUI, you need to act quickly to defend your liberty and reputation. Not only would you be looking at potential incarceration, but you could lose driving privileges almost immediately. You need to take decisive steps to save your license, and to keep from getting a conviction that would be a permanent stain on your record.
