What To Know When Pulled Over For A DUI

Do you know your rights when pulled over for a DUI? Here are some things you need to know:

You do not have to consent to a field sobriety test. These tests are very difficult to pass even when sober. The officer will arrest you if they believe they have probable cause, and the results of a field sobriety test may just give them more evidence to convict you.

If you refuse to consent to a blood test, you face losing your license for one year regardless of a DUI or DWI conviction.
