Two sisters in Miami not only share an unbreakable bond, but they also share an unusual distinction: They both got popped for DUI while riding in the same car at the same time.

Steffany Miranda, 18, and Vanessa Miranda, 24, were both charged with driving under the influence of alcohol in the Florida Keys Saturday night, after deputies noticed their Volkswagen swerving, increasing and decreasing speeds and braking suddenly over a seven-mile stretch, NBCMiami.com reported.

Steffany was behind the wheel when a deputy attempted to pull the car over. Instead of pulling to the side, she allegedly stopped in the middle of the road and switched seats with Vanessa in plain view of the officer and his dash camera, the Miami Herald reported.

Steffany declined to submit to a breath test, while Vanessa submitted to two tests, which showed blood alcohol levels of .127 and .129 percent, well above the legal limit of 0.08 percent, KeysNet.com reported.

The sisters' switcheroo didn't work: since both Steffany and Vanessa had been behind the wheel, with the key in the ignition, at some point during the night, they were both arrested and charged with DUI, according to the New York Daily News.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly listed Florida's legal blood alcohol limit as 0.80 percent.
