Top Ten Do's & Don'ts for DUI Suspects

  • Do provide the officer with your driver’s license, proof of insurance, and registration if possible.
  • Do comply with an officer’s request for you to exit the vehicle.
  • Do be courteous to law enforcement but do not say more than you have to or give them any evidence.
  • Do remember the Fifth Amendment protects your right to remain silent.
  • Do understand you have the right to refuse sobriety tests and to appeal any license suspension imposed.
  • Do Not talk to police about where you were or what you did. Tell the officer, “I want to speak to an attorney before I say or do anything.”
  • Do Not take any field sobriety tests. These tests are voluntary, subjective, and meant to incriminate you. Tell the officer, “I want to speak to an attorney before I say or do anything.”
  • Do Not give law enforcement consent to search your vehicle.
  • Do Not consent to taking chemical tests - including blood, breath, or urine tests - until you speak with a lawyer.
  • Do Not allow law enforcement to pressure you into taking sobriety or chemical tests. They are scientifically unreliable and will not help your case.
