- Consider the prosecution must prove that you were impaired at the time
of driving. To do this, you will most likely be asked to submit to a blood
alcohol test or field sobriety test, and answer questions about your drinking.
Although many people are unaware of their rights at a traffic stop: you
have the right to refuse to submit to a chemical test, field sobriety test
or to answer most questions. The refusal to submit to chemical tests may
lead to the loss of driving privileges for one year or longer depending
on prior convictions.
- The vast majority of people accused of drunk driving are not "criminals";
but in fact, ordinary citizens caught up in the criminal justice system.
A vigorous defense can be mounted challenging the opinion of the police
officer and the validity of the tests. Independent witnesses who can attest
to the amount alcohol the accused drank and officers' testimony can be
dissected.. Other inquiries can include:
- Did the police have reasonable suspicion to conduct their investigatory
Did they have probable cause to effect an arrest?
Were you advised of your right to remain silent?
Were to advised of your right to counsel?
Was the blood/breath evidence obtained and analyzed properly?
