Driving under the influence (DUI) is a crime of driving a motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol or drugs. If you are arrested for DUI, then hiring a criminal defense attorney will help you.
Three Phases of DUI Detection
In DUI investigations, police officers follow guidelines during the process. There are three phases in the DUI investigation.
- Vehicle in motion: In this phase, the officer decides whether to stop the vehicle by observing the manner in which the vehicle is driven. If the officer stops the vehicle without a probable cause, then it is a violation of the United State Constitution.
- Personal contact: In this phase, the officer makes face-to-face contact with driver and observes appearance, behavior, coordination, and verbal interaction.
- Test: In this phase, the officer tests the driver’s blood alcohol level. The driver has a right to refuse the test, but may be penalized.
