Arrests for DUI/DWI otherwise known as drunk driving are based solely on how much the person consumed and if after drinking was the individual not able to drive his/her car in a "normal" capacity. Another factor includes how impaired he/she appeared to the officer. Keys to a successful DWI/DUI defense are often revealed by examination of the following circumstances:
The Traffic Stop: Was there probable cause? Was the stop legal? No operator of a motor vehicle can legally be stopped unless the police officer has what is known as a reasonable belief that the law has been or is being broken.
The Breath Test: Make the case that the breath-testing equipment was not accurate in its results. In most cases the breathalyzer is often only administered once. Experts contend that one test alone simply is not reliable.
Field Sobriety Tests: Argue the sufficiency of the field sobriety tests that were performed on you prior to your arrest. Was the "walk the line" test properly conducted and are the results valid?
