If you are pulled over and an officer suspects you have been drinking there are a number of clues of intoxication he is trained to look for.
Some of the most common are:
- Difficulty getting your driver‘s license and insurance card. Always keep these items in a location that is easily accessible. Take your time when getting and presenting them to the officer.
- Blood Shot Eyes. Keep Visine in your vehicle and use it.
- Odor of alcohol coming from your breath or from inside the vehicle. Brush your teeth or chew gum and drive with the windows down. Avoid Listerine or other mouthwashes that contain alcohol.
- Slurred Speech. Speak as little as possible and only enough to answer the officer’s specific questions.
REMEMBER: EVERYTHING YOU SAY IS BEING RECORDED.
