Flat Tire Turns into DUI Charge

Tuesday the 2nd of September, a man was said to be driving on a flat tire on Florida's Turnpike. At about that time, officers noticed the flat and pulled the driver over. They also suspected that the man was under the influence. When field sobriety tests were administered, the man did poorly. Florida Highway Patrol looked into the matter further, and eventually, the man was not only charged with a DUI, but he was also charged with driving with a suspended license.

If this is the man's first DUI offense, then he could be looking at months in jail as well as hundreds of dollars in fines. That is not including license suspension, probation, vehicle impoundment, and other DUI penalties. If convicted of driving with a suspended license, then the penalties faced would become even more severe.

Unfortunately, there are a number of ways in which an undeserving person can be slapped with these charges. For example, field sobriety tests can often yield dubious results. Medical conditions or a lack of physical coordination can cause you to fail these sobriety tests, and even nerves can affect the mental aspects of these tests. It can be natural to be flustered when you are pulled over. Still, one simple mistake could turn into a DUI charge.

If you are faced with any such charges, whether you have been previously convicted or whether you are underage, you need to find the best DUI defense lawyer that you can.
