What to Do During a DWI Stop in Greensboro, NC

If you are pulled over for a DWI in Greensboro, there are some preventative measures that may help you. You will want to make sure that no action of yours can be used by the officer as additional evidence of “impairment”.

One of the first things the officer will request is your license and registration. The ideal place to keep these documents is on the visor so you can easily retrieve them and give them to the officer. If the documents are buried in the glove box, it will take longer to get them, and when you lean over, it could give the officer the opinion that your balance is affected, which he would utilize as further evidence of impairment.

The items below are intended to help you prevent the state from acquiring the evidence it needs to convict you of DWI:

  • Try not to make casual conversation with the officer. Be polite of course, but anything you say beyond the basic “Yes, sir” and “No, sir” could give the officer cause to say you slurred your speech. The less you need to speak to the officer, the better.

  • Officers are trained to ask you distracting questions, especially if they suspect you’re impaired. They’re checking to see if you’re confused easily.

  • Try to avoid eye contact if possible (Avoiding eye contact makes it harder for the officer to testify that your eyes were red and glassy).

  • Refuse to perform any field sobriety tests. The law does not require that you perform these “tests”, and all they can really do is assist in establishing probable cause against you for your arrest.

Your DWI Defense Options

In a Greensboro DWI case the prosecution must prove several elements in order to successfully win a case. The law states that the prosecution needs to prove you were driving the vehicle and that you were impaired on an impairing substance at that time.

The defense can prevent evidence from being presented at trial proving these elements, and thus preventing the prosecution from proving its case. There are many defense strategies in a Greensboro DWI case, but your attorney should be attempting to achieve a :

  • Dropped or dismissed case

  • A not-guilty ruling

  • If the evidence cannot be overcome, then your attorney should seek the least possible sentencing.

Below are some common defenses for Greensboro DWI charges:

  • Lack of a reasonable articulable suspicion for the officer to make the stop

  • No probable cause to arrest

  • Evidence of impairment is not admissible or is lacking
