Phoenix DUI attorney Nick Alcock explains what to look out for this holiday season. Be careful because the police are out in force and they are looking to pull anyone over who has exhibited even the slightest evidence of impaired driving. Police will be pulling people over for equipment violations and ticky-tack civil traffic violations. Rest assured that they will also be looking for any sign and symptom of impairment. Bloodshot and watery eyes, odor of alcohol, slurred speech a disheveled clothing are all factors that they will consider.
Attorney Alcock has some simple advice. Before you answer any questions or provide any evidence that could be used against you, ask to speak with an attorney. People frequently think that asking to speak with an attorney can later be used against them–it can’t. It is always advisable to speak with a DUI attorney before you submit to a field sobriety test or give a breath or blood sample. The police are actually duty bound to give you an opportunity to call a DUI attorney before you submit to chemical testing, so long as the call does not interfere with the investigation.
