If you are in a situation where you are being questioned by law
enforcement remember the following:
A) You have the right to remain silent.
B) You have the right to an attorney BEFORE you answer questions or talk to law enforcement.
C) As for searches: Never consent to a search. Have law enforcement get a search warrant.
Each person's individual case is different. If you chose to ignore or waive these constitutional rights and protections, you do so at your own peril. Remember law enforcement folks are trained to observe and gather information and they are good at it. Any incriminating information you provide will be used against you.
DWI and DUI
Please do not drink and drive.
If you find yourself pulled over by law enforcement, you are required to provide:
A) Vehicle registration.
B) Proof of insurance
C) Valid driver's license.
You do not have to answer questions like:
A) Where did you come from?
B) Where are you headed?
C) Have you had anything (alcoholic) to drink?
D) What have you folks been doing?
All of these questions are designed to get someone to give the officer reason to expand the length of the traffic stop and gather information that might lead to an arrest for DWI/DUI, etc.
