The Top 4 Things to Know if You Are Pulled Over for A DUI

Updated: Feb 16

If you have been pulled over or arrested for a DUI, there are a few things that are critical in ensuring that your rights are preserved and obtaining the best possible outcome for your case Here is a list of some of the most important things to keep in mind:

1. Don’t Refuse the Breath Test.

You have the right to refuse the test, but then your license could be suspended for a long period of time, you might be ordered to have a breath lock machine on your car, and the police can go get a warrant draw your blood.

2. Talk to an Attorney Immediately

Don’t wait.

3. Make Sure your Attorney Studies your Case In Depth

Choose a competent attorney who is familiar with the complexities of DUI’s. A good attorney will expose weakness on the prosecution’s side. Some aspects an attorney will look at will include:

  • The legality of the stop

  • Field Sobriety Tests – Administered improperly or were you coerced?

  • Miranda Rights – Were your rights violated by the officer?

  • Confessions – Was this taken illegally?

  • Breath Testing – were any mistakes made in this process by the officer?

  • Blood Testing – Are the blood results accurate?

  • Police Body Camera Footage – This seems simple, but many attorneys do not dissect the footage, which can be very helpful for your case.

4. Don’t Miss a Court Hearing

No matter what, don’t miss a court hearing. If something dire comes up, go to the court as soon as possible and ask for a different time, but make sure you attend any scheduled hearing.
