Be Safe, Avoid DUI Arrests over Memorial Day Weekend


The forecast is calling for a warm, sunny holiday. However you are celebrating Memorial Day, please be cautious of stepped up law enforcement in Orlando and across Central Florida. It's likely police officers will be vigilant for DUI incidents over the weekend.

With the excellent weather and the long weekend, no doubt many people will be getting boats on the water this weekend. Remember that you can be arrested for a DUI while boating. In just about any of Florida's waterways, you can be stopped for DUI just as if you were in a car. It is legal to consume alcohol on your boat, but if you become impaired you can be arrested. Be cautious of dehydration and heat exhaustion that can worsen the effects of alcohol.
