Know your rights when you are stopped for suspicion of DUI

On Behalf of | Nov 2, 2016 | Drunk Driving Charges |

Being pulled over for the suspicion of drunk driving can be a very frustrating experience, especially if you know that you haven’t had anything to drink. It is important for you to keep a clear head when you are interacting with the police officers who initiate the traffic stop. This isn’t always easy, but it is usually the best option that you have.

We know that you might be infuriated that someone is accusing you of drunk driving. You should remember that your actions during the traffic stop can have a profound impact on the outcome. If you are arrested for drunk driving, even if you didn’t have any alcohol before you got behind the wheel, you should be sure that you invoke your rights quickly.

One of the rights that you have is the right to remain silent. While this might not sound like it has a lot to do with a drunk driving case, it can. What you tell the police officers can be used in the case that is presented against you. This means that unless you are absolutely sure that what you are going to say can’t be construed as something that could be a negative point against you, invoking your right to remain silent is likely a good idea.

Another right that you have is the right to have counsel present when you are questioned. We can stand by your side during your interactions with officials regarding your case. We believe that your rights should all be respected, and we will work to ensure they are throughout your drunk driving case.
