DUI Attorney Tampa

Tell Us About Your Case

There are many ways in which a police officer can determine whether or not you have been drinking. No matter which state you live in, anyone over the age of 21 years old can not have a blood alcohol level higher than .08% or otherwise face a DUI charge. If you are under the age of 21 and any amount of alcohol was found in your system, it would be best to hire the assistance of a DUI attorney. Tampa residents should be aware that it does not matter if you live around the corner from a bar or if you feel good enough to drive, the only thing that is taken into account legally is the number for blood alcohol content.

Driving Erratically is the Most Common

Out of all the ways that a police officer can catch a drunk driver, most of the time the drivers themselves tell cops they are under the influence by swerving or driving in a reckless manner. When this happens, the most common procedure is for the officer to pull over the vehicle in question and issue a breathalyzer test to determine the driver’s sobriety. If you register hire than .08%, you will be taken to jail and might need the assistance of a DUI Attorney. Tampa residents would have to be booked and post bail and hope that a friend or family member can get you out of jail.

Traffic Stops are Also Popular

Another way many cops catch drunk drivers is if they are at a routine traffic stop. Most of these stops happen because of common mistakes such as someone running a stop sign or someone being pulled over for having expired tags on their vehicle. Once again if they cannot pass a breathalyzer test then they will be taken to jail where they may need to hire the assistance of a professional DUI attorney. Tampa residents who cannot afford an attorney for their court appearance may have a defendant represent them.
