T he holiday season
is upon us, which
means that in
addition to juggling home,
work and social life, a
whole host of parties,
and other obligations
are thrown into the mix.
That’s why it’s even
more important that you
remember to take some
time out for yourself.
Luckily, Miami abounds
with peaceful, relaxing
locations that make for a
perfect afternoon away
from your to-do list.

The holidays are around the corner and a lot
of us will be joining our family, friends and
colleagues for celebrations and gatherings.
Often during these festive occasions we are
offered food and alcoholic beverages. It’s our
responsibility to be aware of the amount we
consume and take appropriate measures not
to put ourselves and others at risk. The saying
“drinking and driving doesn’t mix” is true,
therefore having a designated driver or taxi
cab on speed dial is always a good idea. In the
event you don’t have a designated driver or taxi
available, here are some facts to consider. Under
Florida law, it’s not necessary for the prosecutor
in a DUI case to prove that the person’s driving
ability was impaired by alcohol at the time of
the arrest; it is necessary only to prove that the
person’s blood or breath alcohol level was above
the 0.08 threshold. The most common method of
proving that a subject’s blood alcohol is above
the .08 is by use of the Intoxilizer machine,
also known as a breath test. If you are stopped
for driving under the influence remember
your rights and be aware of the consent laws.
Attorneys are trained to review DUI cases and
will often point out issues that you may have
