If I get pulled over for DUI, what will the officer be looking for?

 

A: If the police officer suspects that you were driving while intoxicated, the officer will be looking for sufficient reason to arrest you. From the moment he lays eyes on you he will observe your demeanor and smell the air in the car for any traces of any alcohol. The officer will look for a number of traditional indicators of intoxication, including: 1. Odor of alcohol 2. Bloodshot or watery eyes 3. Slurred speech 4. Flushed face complexion 5. Lack of coordination/fumbling to find your license
