When you see the flashing of red and blue lights of a police cruiser in your rearview mirror, it’s normal to feel stress. If you’re being pulled over on the suspicion of driving under the influence, or DUI, you should know your rights so that you don’t say or do anything that can be used against you in court. Always treat the police with respect, but know that you don’t have to provide information about where you’ve been or what you’ve been doing. You can refuse a chemical DUI test, though refusal carries penalties that can be stiffer than a DUI conviction.
