DUI Defense: What to Do When Charged

In case you find yourself faced with a decision that led you to drink and drive, and were suddenly pulled over for a suspected DUI – what do you specifically do?

The law enforcement officer will conduct a “DUI investigation” in your case. One of the first things the officer will ask you is “Where are you coming from; where are you going.” Once the officer starts asking questions, you can simply respond, “Officer, I have nothing to say”. The information the officer asks about upon first contact with you is part of the investigation and what you say in response, will be used against you. So, practice saying, “Officer, I have nothing to say.” You must though provide upon request: your driver’s license, vehicle registration, and proof of auto insurance.

Next the officer will ask you to perform “roadside” maneuvers or roadside tests. These are called Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFST). These are voluntary and you do NOT need to participate in taking these. You will Read More...

What to Expect in the DUI Marijuana Pilot Program Testing

If you use marijuana for medical or recreational purposes in Colorado it is imperative to prepare for possible marijuana (Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol, Drugs or Both) DUID arrest and to know the right DUID Denver Attorney to reach out to for representation. The State of Colorado has for decades used screening tests such as the roadside test commonly known as Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFST) and blood tests as part of ways to determine whether to arrest for a DUID. The Standardized Field Sobriety Test is a three test series administered in a standardized manner. These tests are promulgated by the National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) which is a federal agency.

While these SFST are only validated by NHTSA to predict the level of alcohol in a driver’s system, law enforcement officers are authorized to conduct these tests at the roadside to help them collect evidence in making an arrest. Now, with new laws for the recreational use of marijuana don’t be surprised when confronted by an arresting officer and be asked if you would volunteer in the DUI Marijuana pilot program test. So what exactly is this DUID marijuana screening all about? Read More...

Colorado’s Express Consent Law and DUI’s

What happens if you get pulled over by the police on suspicion of drunk or drugged driving? If you get arrested for a DUI, will you decide on a breath or blood test or refuse either. Are you in fact required to take one or can you refuse to take the test? Will a refusal revoke your driving privileges?

What is the Colorado Express Content Law all about? Colorado DUI law states that a person who drives a vehicle in the State of Colorado agrees ahead of time (expressly consents) to take and complete a test of his or her blood (by blood draw) or breath (by Intoxilyzer). That is why it also applies to out-of-state drivers who drive on the streets and highways of Colorado. It has nothing to do with Read More....

Key Tips to Remember When Pulled For Suspicion of DUI
 
Never drink and drive—but if you happen to get pulled over for suspicion of DUI, always remember that you have rights in which you can use to assert yourself in a very amicable manner.
 
Officers would normally ask you a series of questions, but you do have the right to remain silent since any statement you give out could be easily used against you. Another point to take note of is that roadside tests are 100% voluntary and not a necessity. Read More….

Hiring the Best Local Attorney for your Out-of-Town DUI Case
If you are stopped by a police officer because you are driving erratically, there’s a big chance he suspects you are driving while intoxicated.

In 2011, approximately 1.2 million drivers were arrested for driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. This is the reason why state laws on DUI are rigid.
