A DUI charge can have a dramatic effect on your life. Every DUI case is different and comprised of a variety of factors. When an officer pulls you over, he or she will begin immediately making observations. This is especially true if you have been driving erratically.
Some of the things the police officer will be looking for include:
- Alcohol on your breath
- Your demeanor
- How your eyes look
- Your coordination
What is the DUI process?
If there is enough evidence that you have been drinking, the officer will ask you to get out of your vehicle. You will be asked to complete a series of field sobriety tests. Keep in mind, however, that you are not legally bound to perform these tests and the results can be used against you by prosecution. Once the tests are executed, the officer may arrest you depending on the results.
When you arrive at the station, the officer may question you about the incident. You have a right to remain silent and should speak with an attorney from Gounaris Denslow Abboud, Co. LPA before talking. We can speak on your behalf to protect your rights.
You will be asked to submit to one or more chemical tests. If you refuse to take a blood, urine, or breathe test, your license will be automatically suspended. This same action will occur if you test over the legal blood alcohol content limit. If you are a commercial driver or have received a DUI conviction within the last 20 years, you must submit to the tests.
