Sinclair Law Reviews Bill Against Texting And Driving

MELBOURNE, Fla (PRWEB) October 08, 2013

Florida Governor Rick Scott signed bill SB52 into law on May 28, 2013 and it finally kicks into gear on October 1st. The bill bans texting to communicate with others using email or traditional phone texting capabilities. Drivers will still be able to text if it is to report a crime, listen to music or use a text to talk device.

Many doubters say the bill doesnt have much teeth and may go largely ignored by the texting public. Most critics are disappointed that it is being treated as a secondary offense, meaning a police officer can only deal with the issue once they have observed other law breaking behaviors. Consequently, police really dont have much faith that any serious enforcement can be done with the ban as it is presently.

Its a step in the right direction, but it is a small step, says Brad Sinclair of Sinclair Law. Being a secondary offense, the law takes a backseat, priority wise, because its not something that is easily enforceable. You are going to have to see some other violation first. It takes a little bite out of how serious of a stand the state is taking on it.

There are plans to introduce a bill in the 2014 legislative session that will make texting and driving a primary offense. That will give it the necessary teeth to be very enforceable in every Florida jurisdiction. In the meantime, bill SB52 may hopefully be a first step into encouraging folks to stop texting and driving, says Sinclair. Most drivers that admit to driving and texting say that its out of habit more than anything else.

DUIAttorneyJacksonville.net Establishes New Information and Resource Center to Assist Individuals Charged with Driving Under the Influence

Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) June 27, 2013

DUIAttorneyJacksonville.net announced the publication of their new information and resource website to help people arrested for driving while intoxicated in the city of Jacksonville, FL. Anyone charged with this criminal offense needs to become proactive and learn about their legal rights and the consequences of a DUI conviction.

The DUI Attorney Jacksonville website delivers important facts and suggestions for hiring a DUI law firm in Duval County Florida. These resources are not only helpful to local residents, but also those who are visiting the area for business or pleasure.

It goes without saying that the best way to avoid arrest is to not drink and drive. However, most states have set legal limits at 0.08 percent blood alcohol content (BAC) which equates to less than two alcoholic beverages.

Certain factors, such as prescription and over the counter medications, and lack of sleep or food, can interfere; causing BAC to rise quickly and exceed legal limits. Individuals who misjudge alcohol intake and are arrested must retain an experienced Jacksonville DUI lawyer to defend their case.

Locating a criminal defense attorney who is experienced and dedicated to their clients is essential for reducing or eradicating DUI charges. Lawyers must be adept in understanding Florida DUI laws to ensure clients are given due process.

Lawyers will review all evidence obtained at the time of arrest to ensure Jacksonville police officers were compliant with field sobriety testing protocol. They also analyze arrest records to ensure law enforcement had probable cause to make the arrest.

DUIAttorneyJacksonville.net provides substantial information to help visitors learn about Florida drunk driving laws and how to find experienced attorneys. The consequences associated with this criminal offense are determined by a variety of factors. One of the more influential is the type of DUI arrest.

Florida has six classifications which include first, second, third, or fourth offense, DUI refusal, and public intoxication.

A first offense carries a sentence of up to six months incarceration, suspension of driving privileges, and court fines. Sentencing can be extended if additional factors are involved such as extremely high blood alcohol content levels; having a person under the age of 18 in the vehicle; or causing an accident that involves property damage or bodily injury.

Consequences increase with each subsequent arrest and can result in lifelong suspension of driving privileges, as well as higher court fines and incarceration periods.

Under special circumstances, individuals can elect to accept a “wet reckless” plea bargain which lets them lessen their charges and sentencing. Under wet reckless, defendants are charged with reckless driving rather than driving under the influence.

Most often, Florida prosecuting attorneys only accept wet reckless plea bargains when it is the defendant’s first DUI offense and their BAC levels are marginally above legal limits. Defendants who elect to accept plea bargains must retain services from an experienced DUI attorney in Jacksonville.

Minors who make the decision to consume or possess alcohol are subject to Florida’s Zero Tolerance Law. The Sunshine State imposes harsh penalties for underage drinking convictions which can result in loss of driving privileges and up to two months incarceration.

In the state of Florida is it against the law for minors to possess alcohol, let alone consume it. Anyone who is under the age of 21 and possesses alcohol might be charged with a second degree misdemeanor which carries consequences of court fines, loss of driving privileges, and incarceration.

It is imperative to retain services from experienced Jacksonville DUI attorneys as quickly as possible. Individuals must request a court hearing within 10 days of their arrest to prevent long-term suspension of their driver’s license. Furthermore, defendants should obtain legal representation to ensure they do not unintentionally surrender their rights.

DUIAttorneyJacksonville.net provides around-the-clock assistance to people who have been charged with driving under the influence, public intoxication, or underage drinking or possession of alcohol.

Individuals who take time to learn about Florida drinking and driving laws and invest time in locating a qualified lawyer can improve chances of reducing the consequences associated with this criminal offense. A good place to start is the DUI Attorney Jacksonville website.

DUIAttorneyJacksonville.net supplies essential resources to help individuals charged with drinking and driving. Visitors can better understand Florida DUI laws and learn how to find a good Jacksonville DUI criminal defense attorney. Get started by visiting http://www.DUIAttorneyJacksonville.net today.

Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) August 18, 2013

DUI Attorney Jacksonville.org announced the addition of videos to their DUI website which help individuals acquire legal information about defending their case. People who are facing criminal charges must become informed about the consequences of DUI conviction and the options for reducing the charges against them.

The new videos offered at the DUI Attorney Jacksonville website provide essential facts about Florida drunk driving laws. Visitors also have access to vital tips for locating quality legal representation in Jacksonville.

Any person who is charged with driving under the influence must become diligent in understanding their legal rights and finding an experienced lawyer. DUIAttorneyJacksonville.org has become a trusted source for obtaining information and referrals to DUI law firms in Duval County, FL.

Along with supplying important data to residents, the video resource center is also aimed at helping tourists who are unfamiliar with the area. Being arrested for drinking and driving is never a good experience. It can be even more frightening when visiting an unfamiliar locale.

Legal limit of alcohol consumption in Florida is under 0.08 percent blood alcohol level. Essentially, this is equal to two beers or two ounces of hard liquor. People who exceed legal limits and get arrested need to hire a Jacksonville DUI attorney as quickly as possible.

Defendants only have ten days to request a hearing for temporary restoration of driving privileges. If they miss the deadline they will have to wait until a judge rule their fate. It’s important to have legal representation at court hearings to avoid additional consequences, such as unintentionally surrendering legal rights.

The Jacksonville DUI Lawyer website is accessible 24/7 to provide defendants with videos and content about drinking and driving, underage drinking, and public intoxication.

The newly added videos also cover topics of unwarranted DUI arrest, faulty sobriety testing, and improper police procedures. A shocking statistic is nearly 30 percent of people arrested in Florida are not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It’s vital to hire the best DUI lawyers in Jacksonville any time there is question about events associated with the arrest.

The Sunshine State is a popular destination for college students, but those who are underage should be forewarned of the harsh consequences. Not only does Florida have zero-tolerance for underage drinking, they also arrest minors for possession; regardless if they’ve had a drop to drink or not.

Consumption of alcohol can cause minors to lose their driver’s license, along with serving time in jail or juvenile detention center. Parents of children under 18 will be responsible for court fines, legal fees, and bail bondsmen expenses.

The new video resource center discusses the different types of DUI charges and the consequences associated with each. Those who spend time getting familiar with Florida DUI laws and finding experienced attorneys can improve their odds of having charges reduced or dismissed.

The Jacksonville DUI Attorney website is a good place to start. It provides resources and informational videos to make the task of finding the best DUI attorneys in Jacksonville easier and more efficient.
