WHAT TO DO WHEN STOPPED FOR SUSPICION OF DUI:

  1. Do not submit to FIELD sobriety tests (ie. heels to toe, touching your  nose, walking a line);
  2. Do not take the PAS test;*
  3. Do NOT admit to drinking anything-confess to God, and respectfully tell the officer that your attorney has instructed you not to answer those types of questions;
  4. Be polite and patient;
  5. Keep drivers license, proof of insurance and registration in an easy to reach location to present to officer immediately.
