If it’s late at night and you have left a bar or restaurant, the police are looking for you! Police officers are trained to stake out in certain locations and look for people who have been drinking and who decided to drive.
If you are pulled over and you have been drinking keep these things in mind. First, always be polite! Becoming angry with the police officer will only lead to more harassment. Offending the police is the best way to ensure you spend the night in the jail and not in your own bed. Second, always refuse their tests! Officers are trained to use Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. These agility tests are difficult to perform no matter your age, health or condition. The police ask citizens to perform these tests on the side of the road in environments that guarantee you will fail the tests! Third, demand to speak to a lawyer! If an officer is asking you questions on the side of the road, he is trying to trip you up. He is trying to find out if you did anything wrong. You need the help of an experienced lawyer who knows their tricks.
