This, by far, is the most common question I’m asked as a DUI attorney:
If I get pulled over or arrested, what should I do?
I was recently asked this by a friend who knew someone who had been arrested for DUI in California.
The first thing I told him is to remember that everything the officer does—on the roadside and at the police station—is meant to ensure a conviction.
I told him the there’s a big imbalance of power between the officer and the person who’s being arrested, and that cops know how to use this coercive power to get people to do things that actually get them convicted.
To answer his question more fully, I wrote an article, stripped of all legal jargon, which provides a no-nonsense guide to protecting your rights and reducing the likelihood of a conviction.
Think you know what do if you were pulled over and arrested?
