A change to Florida's DUI suspension review will have a major impact on drivers charged with being under the influence. There’s now an option to avoid the automatic hard license suspension. But does this mean people are being coerced into waving away a very important right?
As Florida law stands, a driver who refuses to take a breathalyzer test, or who takes one and blows over a .08 receives an automatic suspension starting immediately, independent of the criminal case. This is an administration license suspension (ALS).
