The slightest amount of alcohol or drugs in your system has the potential to affect your ability to operate a motor vehicle.
“I only had a couple of beers,” or “I haven’t smoked since last night” are not things you’d say to a law enforcement officer who’s just pulled you over.
Those statements won’t entice him to go easy on you.
In fact, they’re admissions of guilt.
- Do NOT tell the officer what you had to drink
- Do NOT tell the officer when you last drank or used marijuana
- Do NOT tell the officer when you last drove, if you’re contacted in a parked car
Statements you voluntarily make can definitely be used against you in a DUI or DWAI case.
The other side is counting on your ignorance of the law. They want the easiest possible case to put you away.
They are NOT on your side.
Don’t make things easier on them!
