Baltimore DUI Attorney
What rights do I have in a DUI traffic stop?
It is frightening to be pulled over and accused of drinking and driving and many people feel overwhelmed and numb. A common reaction is to comply with all questions and all instructions. Stop! Before doing or saying anything, it is imperative that you contact a Baltimore DUI lawyer from Richard S. Miller, Attorney at Law, who will stand by your side during this traumatic time, explain the process and help make sure that your very important civil liberties are safeguarded.
You have a number of very important rights, some of which are: 1) to speak with an attorney; 2) to refrain from answering any questions from the arresting officer; 3) to refuse a field sobriety test; and 4) to refuse a chemical, or
breath test. Under Maryland law, if you are unsure about taking a field sobriety test, you are allowed to consult with an attorney prior to taking it. However, the test will need to be completed within 2 hours of the time the officer pulled you over.
