Getting a DUI is no joke. Not only are you likely to be required to pay fines of up to $4000, you may also be facing community service requirements, probation, the loss of your license, and even jail time.
In the state of Florida, it is possible to be charged with a DUI even if you are not driving. All that is required is that you be in “actual physical control” of the vehicle.
Actual Physical Control
Actual Physical Control of the vehicle means that you are in or near the truck or car, and you have the ability to drive, even if you aren’t behind the wheel and the car isn’t on. If you have the keys on you and are near the vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or another substance, you can be charged with Driving Under the Influence.
