Anyone under 21 years of age pulled over for suspected drunk or impaired driving can be charged with underage DUI if a chemical test determined their blood alcohol to be .02% or higher. Florida has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to underage drivers, which means even if a person does not have a BAC of .08%, they could still be facing charges. Any individual charged with underage DUI faces serious administrative penalties and possible disciplinary action from their school. Contact a Fort Lauderdale DUI attorney right away!
