BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — If your New Year’s resolution is to become better acquainted with the South Florida legal system, just ignore this warning. But if you want to stay out of jail, prevent months of court appearances and embarrassment, and thousands of dollars in legal bills, note this: police departments are planning major DUI enforcement operations overnight.

Law enforcement agencies warn motorists every year, yet every year we report on the large number of DUI arrests logged on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Expect a significant police presence tonight and overnight on county and city roads in both Palm Beach County and Broward County. In Broward, BSO has already announced a “high visibility enforcement” operation between 5 p.m. and 5 a.m.

Florida Highway Patrol, which is responsible for I-95 and the Florida Turnpike, is also expected to have a significant presence.

Even though the legal limit is .08, you can be arrested for DUI whether or not you register that Breath or Blood Alcohol Content. A suspicion of DUI is enough for a Law Enforcement Officer to arrest you for DUI. We also remind readers that if you refuse to provide a breath or blood sample, you will more likely than not lose your license until 2023 becomes 2024.
