Florida DUI Schools
by Max Bellamy
With a good number of automobiles on the road and a fair amount of people driving them under the influence of alcohol, there is every justification for tighter enforcement of road laws, as well as more alcohol-education programs for such errant drivers. Florida is a state where driving under the influences (DUI) cases are considered the highest in the country, and they are constantly on the rise. Therefore, there are many alcohol education programs to handle these cases.
Legal provisions in Florida, with a few exceptions, stipulate that when a person is charged with DUI, they have to attend compulsory DUI classes for a stipulated period in order to drive legally again. Though conviction varies depending upon the nature of the offence, a 50-day sentence of attending DUI classes is often mandatory.
DUI classes are conducted to help offenders learn the rules of safe driving with special reference to alcoholism. These schools have specialists who teach the basics of safe driving. There are also e psychologists to help offenders recover from any trauma they might be suffering from. These schools have tailor-made solutions for all drivers who find themselves on the wrong side of the law due to alcohol. This is why classes for first time offenders vary a great deal compared from classes for people who have been repeatedly booked under DUI.
DUI cases are most common in affluent areas of Florida like Dade, Palm Beach, Jacksonville, Broward and Hillsborough. Consequently, there is a proliferation of DUI schools in these areas. Advocate Program Inc. in Dade, Central Florida Safety Council in Brevard and The Broward County Commission on Alcoholism are a few.
