Were You Pulled Over For Suspicion Of Intoxication?

What To Do When You’re Pulled Over For Drunk Driving

When you see the flashing lights and hear the siren, the first thing you want to do is slow down, signal and pull over. You will want to pull over the shoulder or any area outside of oncoming traffic. The recommended next steps are as follows:

  • Put your car into park and turn off the engine.
  • Turn off your radio.
  • Roll down your window for the officer.
  • Keep both hands on the steering wheel at all times and describe where they may move when the officer requests documentation.
  • Provide the officer with the requested documentation.
  • Speak to the officer with respect. You also have the right to remain silent.

The law enforcement officer will document your every move, be cautious about what you say and do. If the officer asks you to participate in a field sobriety test, you should follow their instructions.

If the officer issues you a citation for a DUI or an OUI, you will want to consult a criminal defense attorney. Our lawyer has more than two decades of experience advocating for people like you. Attorney Joshua P. Fink has received the same training police undergo for National Highway Safety Administration sobriety testing in Alaska. We will investigate the details of your stop.
