Your Rights When Stopped for DUI

If you are stopped at a sobriety checkpoint, you have the right to refuse to answer questions from the police – until your attorney is present. The police can’t search your car without your permission; unless they have legal cause to search. You can refuse to take a sobriety test or to be in a police lineup. If you’re arrested, the police must transport your car and belongings to a safe place.

If the police don’t arrest you, they can’t keep you at the stop without legal cause. It’s important to remember that if you are stopped, you should either answer the police or refuse to answer them politely. Any hostile or suspicious behavior could be considered a reason for the police to arrest or detain you.

If you are charged with DUI, the laws are complex. You’ll need the best DUI attorney in Philadelphia to protect yourself and your reputation.
