What are the consequences of DUI?

There are plenty of lengthy, arduous and downright expensive penalties that come after a Florida DUI conviction. After the sanctions levied by Florida law take effect, you are likely to feel some of the unseen, or collateral consequences of a DUI, starting with a considerable increase in your auto insurance rates. To make matters worse, a DUI conviction could affect your ability to get to work, prevent you from getting certain jobs in the future, impact your ability to get a loan, make you ineligible for scholarships, obtain a professional license or even get you fired from your current job.
