If you are arrested for drunk driving in the state of Florida, the penalties can be extremely harsh. Every state has its own penalties and they are very wide-ranging. Even the individual state penalties for drunk driving vary greatly. In Florida, for example, a driver convicted of drunk driving can suffer penalties ranging from a fine of anything from $250 to $5000 and a 5 year jail term. Unless the driver requests an administrative hearing within 10 days of their arrest, their license will also be suspended.
Drunk driving laws and penalties vary from state to state. In Florida at least, the penalties are enough to make you think twice before picking up the keys after a long night out.
