What Are Your Rights During a DWI Stop?
Knowing your rights during a DWI stop could be the difference between conviction and acquittal. What you should know is that any infringement of these rights, such as the improper collection of evidence, could result in the evidence against you being ruled inadmissible and the charges against you being dropped. If you are stopped by a police officer who questions whether or not you’ve had too much to drink, did you know that:
- You do not have to answer any questions.
- You do not have to agree to perform roadside tests.
- You do not have to agree to have your eyes tested.
- You do not have to agree to blow into a hand-held breath tester.
- In many cases you do not have to take a breath or blood test.
- You have the right to a Administrative License Revocation Hearing
- You have the right to appeal any judgment made against you.
