What to Do If You Are Pulled Over by Police

If you have been pulled over under suspicion of driving under the influence, there are a few steps you can do take to legally protect yourself.

These steps include:

  1. Do not be intimidated by the police: If you are nervous, police officers may think that you are hiding something or are intoxicated. Don’t give them that opportunity. Remaining calm and being polite are good ways to ensure that police officers leave you alone.
  2. Clean out your glove box: Fumbling through these compartments to find your registration or insurance can be easily misinterpreted as intoxication. Keeping the glove box or center console neat and clean allows you to swiftly grab your identification and present it to a police officer.
  3. Do not let the police search your car: Any evidence found in your car could be used to support a DUI conviction. Do not allow the officer to perform a search without a warrant.
  4. Take the sobriety test: Many DUI defendants have been found not guilty due to a malfunctioning breath analyzing machine or an improperly administered blood or urine test. Also, you may still blow under the legal limit.
  5. Get a blood test after release: Alcohol detection devices can be unreliable and malfunction. Don’t go to jail because of a broken machine. It’s a good idea to measure your BAC (blood alcohol concentration) with a blood test after arrest. At trial, your lawyer can use that evidence to raise possible defenses.
  6. Contact a DWI attorney in Dakota County immediately: A skilled DUI/DWI lawyer can help you ensure your rights are not violated before your case goes to trial. Additionally, an attorney can effectively advocate and litigate for your best interests.
