Counselor advising on what to do if you are stopped

If you have been pulled over by the police,there are several ways that you can help yourself:

  1. Do not be intimidated by the police. If you are nervous, police officers may think that you are hiding something or are intoxicated. Don’t give them that opportunity. Remaining calm and being polite are good ways to ensure that police officers leave you alone.
  2. Clean out your glove box.Fumbling through these compartments to find your registration or insurance can be easily misinterpreted as intoxication. Keeping the glove box or center console neat and clean allows you to swiftly grab your identification and present it to a police officer.
  3. Do not let the police search your car.Any evidence found in your car could be used to support a DUI conviction. Do not allow the officer to perform a search without a warrant.
  4. Contact a DWI attorney immediately.
