The Traffic Stop

There is much to know about the initial traffic stop if you have been drinking. Many of the most important decisions in a DUI case are front-loaded into the first few seconds, and how you respond may make all the difference in whether you are charged or convicted. 

DUI investigations are very complicated. The police often make mistakes which may ultimately cause a case to be reduced or dropped. So it is important to know what to say and do--or more importantly, what NOT to say and do.
