A drunk driving arrest can go wrong

| Oct 23, 2014 | Drunk Driving |

Colorado, just the same as every other state in the nation, looks down upon driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. There is never a good time for a person to drive under the influence, as this increases the chance of an accident. Even if the person is able to avoid an accident, he or she could get in trouble with the law, leading to a fine and possible license suspension among other penalties.

Due to a large number of variables, many things can go wrong during a drunk driving arrest. For example, road and weather conditions, a vehicle malfunction, and medical conditions can all come into play. Police may believe they have probable cause to arrest you, but in all actuality they do not.

Here are some other details to consider:

— Police often take part in dubious arrest procedures.

— Strenuous field sobriety tests are not simple for all people to pass, even if they are 100 percent sober.

— Defective breath test equipment could lead to a false positive.

If police do not act in the appropriate manner during a DUI arrest, as laid out by the law, your situation will change for the better.

Since there is a lot that can go wrong with a drunk driving arrest, it is important to know your rights as well as the protocol that police should follow. Anybody who has been charged with DUI should learn more about local laws. Getting started is as simple as browsing our website, paying close attention to the page discussing Colorado Springs DUI laws.
