The number of DUI arrests is on the rise, which means drivers must be more vigilant than ever before. A DUI conviction has serious consequences, which impact your personal life and finances. Increased insurance rates and payment of hefty fines are common in DUI cases and this can really interfere with your monthly budget.
While DUI’s are up in nearly every part of the State, central Florida has been hit really hard:
● Arrest rates are up 4% over this time just one year ago.
● Common target areas for police include parts of town near colleges and universities.
The inclination to patrol college areas more heavily typically pays off for police. University campuses see their fair share of social activity, and most likely drinking is involved. With the rate of DUI arrest in central Florida increasing, you can bet police departments around the State will take a queue from the methods employed there, and begin implementing similar tactics.
