Unlawful Police Stops
Many DUI arrests are made wrongfully due to an unlawful police stop or
police misconduct in a field sobriety test or BAC test. An officer can
only stop a motorist if they were tipped off by another motorist and /
or they witnessed signs of intoxication as the motorist operated their
vehicle. These signs include weaving out of their lane, erratic speeds,
ignoring traffic signs and signals, failing to use their turn signals,
and driving in the dark with the headlights off. If an officer stops you
without having grounds to do so, they have overstepped their authority
and violated your rights.
If you are arrested for driving under the influence, you still have rights.
These rights have become known as the Miranda Warning or Miranda Rights
and include your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney.
Contrary to popular belief, an arresting officer does
not have to "read you your rights" when they arrest you. They
are required to honor those rights, however, which means that your case could
be dismissed if they violate those rights.
Your right to remain silent is extremely important. Anything you say after
your arrest can be used against you during your trial, which is why you
should not say another word to anyone - even law enforcement officers
- until you've exercised your other right, the right to an attorney.
