Leaving the Scene
Hit & Run DUI Defense Attorneys in Fort Myers
Florida law requires drivers to stop at the scene of an accident, exchange
insurance and contact information, and render aid to any injured parties.
Failure to do so may result in charges of a noncriminal traffic infraction
and a nonmoving violation. If you are facing DUI charges along with leaving
the scene, penalties become much more serious. Call Parks & Braxton,
