Dealing with Your DUI Responsibly: A Guideline

Whenever you drink and drive, you must be prepared for the consequences. A DUI is a criminal offense that police will rarely ignore. If you have ever been pulled over by an officer after a night of drinking, you know how intimidating and frightening of an experience it can be.

Be Calm and Cooperative

Despite how high the stakes may be, the more cooperative you are and the calmer you appear with police the better off you are. In a heightened state, especially at night, you’re likely to be overwhelmed by your situation. By following the directions of the officer and not overreacting to the situation, you can minimize the consequences

Outline the Procedures

The next day you should write down your thoughts and recollections of the incident. As you write down your thoughts, ensure that you record: the exact time of the incident, as well as the location. Recall the exchange between yourself and the officer as best you can. Note the reasons given by the police officer, as to why you were pulled over. You and Keith J.
