The DWI / DUI  Traffic Stop

If you are pulled over for a DWI in High Point, there are several things you can do to help yourself either avoid getting the DWI, or at least increase your chances of success if you are charged with a DWI. The first thing law enforcement officers usually do during a traffic stop is ask for license and registration. The  absolute best place for these items is clipped to your sun visor; providing easy access so you can grab them and hand them to the officer with a minimum of movement. The police are trained to detect any evidence of impairment, so if you have them in your glove box and reach across to retrieve the documents it could give the police more opportunity to gather “evidence” of impairment.

Here are a few things 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.

DWI cases are each unique and present their own challenges. Almost everything depends on how much you’ve had to drink. Please don’t give up your rights. Call our experienced High Point DWI attorneys for help if you have been charged.
