Vehicle Impoundment After a DUI Arrest

Contact Our Jacksonville DUI Attorneys

If you are convicted of a DUI in Florida, you face temporary impoundment of your vehicle. Of course your best defense is to not get convicted in the first place; however, in some cases where conviction is inevitable, the actions of an experienced Jacksonville DUI lawyer can help you fight for lowered penalties and reduced charges.

Under §316.193 of the Florida Statutes, the police are authorized to impound your vehicle for 10 days upon your first conviction for DUI. The ten days begins after your release from any jail time. On second conviction within five years, the impoundment time is 30 days. On third conviction within 10 years, the time is 90 days. As an alternative to impoundment, you may have the vehicle immobilized at your home.

Fighting Against Vehicle Immobilization

We assist drivers subject to impoundment of vehicles in Jacksonville, Florida. The legal team at the Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. is a DUI defense law firm comprised of three former DUI prosecutors now defending clients in private practice. We make every effort to defend you against DUI conviction in the first place. However, if conviction does occur, we can shield your car from impoundment on either of two grounds: your vehicle is the only available transportation for another member of your family or your vehicle is driven only by your employees.

If the vehicle is to be impounded, we recommend the alternative of having the vehicle immobilized at your home. In this way, you can keep a watchful eye on your valuable asset. You can also avoid the humiliation of a boot on your wheel by having a "club" device installed on your steering wheel. While keeping the vehicle immobilized, it looks like a normal anti-theft device to your neighbors.

You are invited to contact the firm for a free 1-hour consultation to discuss your DUI case and how to defend you.
