One of the foundational rights during a DUI stop is your right to remain silent. You're under no obligation to answer incriminating questions. Politely inform the officer that you're choosing to exercise your right to remain silent. Remember, being respectful and calm during this process is essential.

Our team at Crouch Bartlett Law emphasizes the importance of this right, as it can protect you from inadvertently admitting to wrongdoing or providing information that could complicate your case. We encourage you to use this right judiciously and in a manner that maintains the cooperative atmosphere of the DUI stop.

Many drivers are unaware that they may legally refuse field sobriety and portable breathalyzer tests without mandatory legal consequences. These tests are subject to error and can sometimes work against you. Before making a decision, know the laws in your state, as they vary regarding these refusals.

At Crouch Bartlett Law, our experts can guide you through the implications of refusing such tests. If you're facing this choice, reach out to us, and we can advise you on the most advantageous course of action based on where you are and your specific circumstances.

If you're detained or arrested during a DUI stop, you have the right to request an attorney. This is one of the most crucial steps you can take to protect your rights. Do not discuss your case with the police until your attorney is present.

Upon stopping, provide the requested documents such as your driver's license, registration, and proof of insurance. You can confirm your identity and comply with basic requests without compromising your rights. Be aware that providing too much information is not recommended.
