What to Know If You Have Been Stopped by Law Enforcement

Avoid Providing Any Evidence To Help Police Make A Case Against You

If you know you’re way over the limit you don’t have to do their preliminary breath test. You don’t have to do the field sobriety tests. Don’t give the officers any more information because what can also happen is that the District Attorney and the prosecutor in the case, can look at that and use it as more evidence that you are very impaired.

You will give your attorney more room to negotiate if you respectfully declined to do the test, especially when you say because you’ve been instructed by a lawyer never to do the test. That reason will be noted in the police report.
