It is Labor Day weekend and it is the last opportunity for most people to enjoy a long weekend before the winter. People are going to pack the highways and the police are going to be out in full force and arresting people for DUI. The last thing that you want is to be pulled over for DUI. The best way to avoid a DUI is to not drink and drive. However, there are other things that you can do to lessen your chances of being pulled over for a DUI.
There are obvious DUI signs that a police officer looks for in DUI situations. Some DUI signs that may lead an officer to suspect a person of a DUI are: the car is weaving, inability to stay within lanes, car accident, failing to obey traffic lights and just driving poorly.
However, even if the DUI suspect is driving properly, the DUI suspect may still be pulled over for civil violations. When the officer approaches the DUI suspect and smells alcohol, the officer may start their DUI investigation. A person can be pulled over for many civil violations that may lead to a DUI investigation. Some common violations are rejected inspection stickers, improper window tint and excessive sounds from the car or mufflers.
In short, it is important not to draw any attention to yourself because your car is not in good working order. Before you go out make sure that your car is not going to draw unwanted attention from the police. If you have an expired inspection sticker then don’t drive the car. Because if you been drinking and get pulled over for a civil violation, it could end up with you being charged with a DUI.
