This Comment analyzes Florida's new administrative driver's license suspension law for its constitutional and public policy soundness. Part II provides a brief history of recent laws designed to prevent drinking and driving, particularly those laws aimed at individuals under the age of twenty-one. Part III provides an overview of the new law. Part IV provides due process, double jeopardy, and public policy analyses of the new law. Finally, Part V concludes that the Florida Legislature should amend the new law to correct due process problems associated with the use of alcohol screening devices and double jeopardy problems associated with parallel criminal prosecutions.
