TIPS FOR DUI STOPS

 

1. IF YOU ARE PULLED OVER, DON’T SAY ONE WORD MORE THAN YOU HAVE TO.

 

2. DON’T ADMIT TO DRINKING

 

3. IF YOU DO ADMIT TO DRINKING, DON’T SAY HOW MUCH YOU HAD TO DRINK OR WHEN YOU DRANK. AT MOST, ADMIT THAT YOU JUST HAD A DRINK BEFORE YOU LEFT THE PLACE YOU WERE AT.

 

4. BE POLITE

 

5. REMEMBER, IN MOST COUNTIES, THE OFFICER HAS A VIDEO CAMERA IN HIS CAR AND AUDIO RECEIVER ON HIS BODY, SO BE POLITE!

 

6. POLITELY REFUSE TO SUBMIT TO FIELD SOBRIETY TESTING, AS THIS IS NOT MANDATORY AND YOU CANNOT BE PENALIZED FOR A REFUSAL TO TAKE THESE TESTS.

 

7. IF YOU ARE ARRESTED, YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT. EXERCISE THIS RIGHT AND YOU WILL HAVE A MUCH BETTER CHANCE OF AVOIDING A CONVICTION.

 

8. IF YOU ARE ARRESTED BE SURE TO CONTACT THE FLORIDA DHSMV AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. YOU ONLY HAVE TEN (10) CALENDAR DAYS TO SCHEDULE A DMV HEARING REGARDING YOUR LICENSE SUSPENSION. A FAILURE TO SCHEDULE THIS HEARING WILL RESULT IN YOUR AUTOMATIC SUSPENSION OF YOUR DRIVER’S LICENSE.

 

9. YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO LEGAL COUNSEL. THIS IS A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT. DO THIS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THE ATTORNEY CAN HELP YOU FILE FOR A FORMAL REVIEW TO PROTECT YOUR LICENSE AND THIS WILL ALSO GIVE YOU A LEG UP ON THE CRIMINAL CASE AS YOUR ATTORNEY WILL HAVE HAD THE CHANCE TO SPEAK TO THE OFFICERS BEFORE THE CRIMINAL CASE STARTS IN MOST INSTANCES.
