What do you do if stopped on suspicion of DUI in Chicago?
There are some simple things to keep in mind if you are ever stopped on suspicion of DUI. While these suggestions are certainly not a guarantee or promise that if you follow them you will not be charged or convicted with a DUI, they are designed to help give you the best chance to beat a DUI.
Do not alarm the officer. Remain calm. Keep your hands on the top of the steering wheel where the officer can see your hands. Do not make any sudden movements. Wait until the officer asks for your license and registration before opening your glove compartment or fishing in a bag or pocket for your wallet.
Be polite: say “yes sir” and “no sir”.
