“What should I do if I’m stopped in San Diego for a DUI?”
Nationally-known San Diego DUI attorney Lawrence Taylor, author of the legal textbook Drunk Driving Defense (8th edition), offers 5 tips:
- Politely decline to answer questions without an attorney.
- Decline to take any field sobriety tests (not required by law and rarely helps you).
- Unless you are under 21, decline to take any handheld breath test not required by law.
- Agree to take a required “evidentiary” breath test (blood if confident you are under .08%).
- Contact the DMV within 10 calendar days to demand a license suspension hearing.
