In Florida, conviction of a first-time DUI offender (which Tiger Woods qualifies as) could mean up to six months in jail, a year in probation, $1000 in fines and fees, a dozen hours of “DUI school,” 50 hours of community service, and suspension of Woods’ driver’s license for at least six months. Meanwhile, he remains in rehab as a condition to maintain 50/50 custody of his two children.
For some context regarding drowsy driving legislation at that time: The Huffington Post reported just two days after the crash that “Early Saturday morning, a truck driver who reportedly hadn’t slept in more than 24 hours crashed and killed comedian James ‘Jimmy Mack’ McNair. Actor Tracy Morgan was also critically injured. And only a few days before the accident, the Senate Appropriations Committee moved to weaken federal trucker fatigue rules and regulations.”
