How has the DUI law in Florida changed recently?
No matter how it changes, it usually changes in favor of being stricter on offenders.
For instance there's discussion now of the blood alcohol level going down from 0.08 grams per deciliter 0.05. What is important about that and what most people don't realize is a blood alcohol is simply something that the jurors may use to prove one of the elements of the offense. 3 things that have to be demonstrated for the state to find someone guilty of DUI. 1. That they were driving or in actual physical control of the vehicle. 2. That they're under the influence of alcohol or controlled substance. 3. That they're under the influence to the extent that their normal faculties are impaired, their ability to walk or talk and carry out the various tasks that are required. All the blood alcohol number means is that if you had a certain level, currently 0.08 or higher a jury can then presume the third element. That your normal faculties are paired.
