But what if you haven't had a drop of alcohol all day and are still pulled over by police for a DUI/DWI? What's worse, you're also showing all of the signs of intoxication and are thus arrested as a result.

Would you know what to do if you got pulled over for DUI?

Advice for Colorado residents facing DUI charges

Individuals who are arrested for DUI are often ill-prepared to deal with the possible fallout. A DUI arrest and subsequent conviction can be costly in many ways and potentially result in an individual losing the respect of family members and friends as well as his or her drivers' license. What's more, a DUI conviction may result in the loss of employment, housing and, in some cases, one's very freedom. Regardless of the circumstances of a DUI case, there are a number of things those facing these types of serious criminal charges should do and keep in mind.
