Avoid DUI Charges with Reputable Legal Defence

Posted February 8, 2021 by Johngrasso

Prominent Rhode Island legal practice explains the process when the police pull you over
The drill is quite common and most drivers can remember at least one occasion when they had to pull over for an alleged offence. While this tactic is still in use, it is rather questionable and can leave several gaps for your defence team to contest the charges against you.

The common scenario is as follows, you are flagged down to pull over and the police will allege that you are guilty of any kind of traffic offence. Next, they will request your registration, license and your proof of insurance. Often it is at this moment that they will also inform you about the reason they had to stop you.

“The first thing we need to determine during these cases is whether the police violated your rights when they pulled you over. If we can find the slightest indication that the reason they used to stop you was unlawful, the odds are in your favour to get the case against you thrown out,” says Blake Nolan, the marketing consultant of the leading legal practice in Rhode Island, John Grasso.

Once the police have you where they want, next to the road, they will usually start to ask a range of questions. These will include questions such as where have you been, do you know why we had to stop you, have you been drinking tonight? These questions nor their answers are in no way a proof of the level of alcohol in your bloodstream. They merely ask these questions to determine whether you are in a state to continue driving or whether they can lock you up for a DUI. “It has been the case in the past that we had clients who worked long hours, and showed all the signs and symptoms of exhaustion, such as red eyes, slurred speech etc and while they merely wanted to get home to get the rest they needed, local authorities arrested them for driving under the influence. While our team has the qualifications and experience to pinpoint the errors the police made during the process, it does create quite a lot of unnecessary stress and anxiety in your life,” Nolan further states.

Nolan further continues by stating it is important to know your rights. These are rights stating that you do not have to talk much, can kindly decline any kind of test and deny the consent for them to search your car. Lastly, confirm with them if you are under arrest and if they say no, you are free to ride off and avoid any further confrontation.
