Can I Be Stopped and Arrested for DUI or DWI in Florida Even if the Vehicle Was Not Moving?
The short answer is yes you can. A lot of people think by sleeping in the car and they're not driving then they cannot possibly be arrested for DUI. However, the law is written as actual physical control. That means that if you're in the driver seat so to speak falling asleep and the officer comes up to knock on your window and wake you up, you can actually be arrested for DUI even though you were never driving. There are many scenarios where people are in parking lots or driveways and they still can be arrested for DUI even though they are not driving.
