- Safely pull over to the side of the road. If the officer motions for you to exit the highway, do so. Respect the officer. Remember, he is just trying to keep the roads safe for you and others.
- You have the right to ask for your attorney if the officer begins to ask you questions. Remember that any information you willfully give to the officer can be used as evidence.
- You also have the right to refuse the field sobriety tests. These tests include walking on a straight line, standing on one foot, or following a light with your eyes. Again, if you do comply, the results can be used as evidence.
- If the officer asks you to take a breathalyzer test, you do not have the right to refuse. If refused, the officer will warn you of the penalties. If you refuse again, your driver’s license will be revoked and you will be issued a Notice of Suspension.
