In light of the new DUI ruling handed down by the Supreme Court recently, I thought it wise to give readers, friends, family and colleagues a quick refresher on what to do if you’re pulled over on suspicion of DUI.
If you are pulled over for a DUI it all boils down to 4 simple rules:
- Be polite and follow the officer’s basic requests.
- Do not answer ANY questions, and immediately ask to speak to your lawyer. Do not admit you were drinking.
- Do not perform ANY sobriety tests, and do not give a breath sample. They are designed for you to fail.
- As soon as possible call a DUI defense lawyer. You rights and your driver’s license need to be protected.
Follow these simple steps if pulled over for suspicion of DUI. Remember to designate a driver or take a cab in lieu of driving.
