For many ardent football fans, Super Bowl Sunday has the unique distinction of being one of the best and one of the worst days of the year. That's because while it’s the single most important and entertaining game of the NFL season, it's also the last game before the start of what seems like a brutally long offseason.
Chances are that your schedule is very full over the next few weeks with shopping, decorating, gift wrapping and holiday parties. Regardless of how you feel about the latter of these yuletide responsibilities, there's a good chance that when you do go to a family party or work get-together, you'll have an hors d'oeuvre plate in one hand and a glass filled with an alcoholic beverage in the other.
It's important to understand that when a person is charged with driving under the influence here in Florida, they are facing some potentially serious consequences. Indeed, this is the case even for a first-offense DUI, as a conviction could result in fines of up to $1,000 and up to six months behind bars. Furthermore, it can also result in a license revocation of anywhere from 180 days all the way up to one year.
There is no question that the whole process of being pulled over and subsequently arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence can prove to be confusing, embarrassing and altogether frightening.
