7 Steps to take immediately if you get stopped for a DUI
- DO NOT submit to roadsides or "field" breath test. These are absolutely voluntary tests that are unreliable and their only purpose is to provide the police officer with evidence that you are impaired
- DO NOT admit that you had been drinking or try to explain that you're ok to drive. The cop doesn't care and will only use your statements against you.
- DO be courteous and polite - getting upset, angry, or arguing with the officer only provides evidence of impairment.
- DO take the blood or breath test at the police station. Refusing to submit to a chemical test of your blood or breath will automatically revoke your driver's license for one-year in addition to any other revocation or suspension.
- DO NOT make any statements to the police officer, regardless of how nice they may seem or if they say they only want to understand what happened.
- DO immediately request a hearing with the Division of Motor Vehicles as soon as you are released from custody. You only have 7 days to request a hearing or you will lose you right to contest the revocation of your driver's license.
- DO immediately contact an experienced, local DUI attorney to discuss your situation and obtain further advice on what you may or may not need to do. Only a criminal defense attorney with specific experience and knowledge of DUI cases can competently review your case and offer sound advice.
