Suspicion of Dwi: How to Protect Yourself

Suspicion of Dwi: How to Protect Yourself

Driving while under the influence of alcohol is a serious crime. Not only can it result in far-reaching penalties, such as a large fine and time in jail, but it also greatly increases the risk of an accident.

If you’re pulled over for suspicion of DWI, here are some tips:

  • Stay in your seat: After pulling to the side of the road, put your hands on the wheel and stay in your seat. Once the officer arrives at your window, you can put it down.
  • Don’t say too much: The more you talk, the more likely you are to slip up. If you don’t understand a question, tell the officer you aren’t comfortable providing an answer. Remember, you have the legal right to remain silent.
  • Don’t admit to anything: When you are talking, don’t admit to anything. For example, you may be tempted to say you only had one drink earlier in the day, thinking that this will give the officer reason to let you go. In all actuality, it gives them more reason to dig around. And if you are arrested, admitting that you were drinking will be used against you in court.

Just because you’re pulled over for suspicion of DWI doesn’t mean you’ll be arrested. But if you are, don’t resist. This can result in more criminal charges, which complicates your case.

After you’re booked and released, it’s time to consider the steps you can take to protect your legal rights. This means settling on a DWI defense strategy that’s designed to prevent a conviction and the many consequences associated with it.
