In Florida, drunk driving accidents are taken very seriously. Victims of accidents caused by intoxicated drivers are entitled to reprieve and reparations. In Panama City, anyone with blood alcohol levels higher than 0.08% is considered drunk and is prohibited from driving. It does not matter if individuals feel fine enough to drive, they cannot if they have had too much to drink.
For people under 21 years of age, Florida has a zero tolerance rule. This means that if anyone younger than 21 is caught driving with an alcohol level higher than 0.02% (about one drink) they will have their license automatically suspended for 6 months. All of this is because drunk driving is an escalating problem.
