What counts as drunk driving in Florida?

No one intends to get behind the wheel while highly intoxicated, or even just slightly buzzed, and put others' lives at risk. Alcohol, however, impairs judgment so that people make unintentional mistakes that can end in criminal charges.

The best way to avoid finding yourself in this situation is understanding what counts as drunk driving in Florida.

Can a drug conviction make you ineligible for financial aid?

If you are currently putting your son or daughter through college, you may have talked about boundaries and abstaining from drug or alcohol abuse while there. You may also be relying on some federal assistance in the form of financial aid. If, your child receives a conviction for a drug-related crime while in college, he or she can lose his or her ability to hold on to that aid.

Just what types of drug convictions can prevent students from receiving financial aid?

Can you get a DUI for drunken horse riding? In FL, it appears you can.

A Florida woman is facing allegations of driving under the influence (DUI). The interesting part: she was not driving. She was riding a horse.

What happened in this case? A recent report notes that it all began with a call to 911. Someone made the call to report that they had observed a woman who appeared "confused and possibly in danger." When police responded to the scene they found the woman riding her horse through the roadways. They took a breath sample and the woman's blood alcohol level was 0.161. This is over twice the legal limit of 0.08.

Although the woman was clearly inebriated, she was not driving. So how will the state support DUI charges?

Remind your college-bound kids about drinking dangers

Your little boy is all grown up. He has graduated high school. He has been accepted into college and is ready for his new experience. You are both sad and excited for his new adventure. You are proud of his accomplishments and the goals he is pursuing. You want him to really enjoy his college experience.

You know that college is a time where many people explore. There are clubs, activities and an abundance of extra-curricular classes that offer a glimpse into new and exciting hobbies. You also know that college is a time where many students party. You trust your son to be smart and make wise choices. As a parent, you also can't help but worry a little.

Know how to manage conflict to keep your night safe

You go out for a night on the town. You've planned on hitting up a few spots with your friends. You all considered heading to Ball & Chain or possibly Bardot. You know you want some music, drinks and food. It will be a fun night with friends. You are looking forward to it after your long work week. You hope to relax and have a good time.

You never go out expecting to encounter a frustrating situation. When you are in a crowded place, sometimes people cause problems. The involvement of alcohol can intensify poor judgment and cause quick reactions.
