With one of the top party schools in the nation as well as a vibrant and exciting nightlife, it’s no secret Tempe is a center of entertainment with Arizona State University and Mill Avenue within it’s borders. Unfortunately, the strong bar and entertainment scene — and the resulting strong police presence — can lead to charges for driving under the influence or other alcohol related crimes. Before police officers can pull over a driver they suspect of driving under the influence, they must have a reasonable suspicion that the driver is impaired. Actions such as unsignaled lane changes, speeding, failure to use a turn signal, or driving without lights on may qualify as a reasonable suspicion, meaning that even small driving errors can lead to DUI charges. If you or a loved one has been charged with a DUI in Tempe, contact DM Cantor today.
Being suspected of DUI can be a nerve-racking experience, but it is important to remain calm and follow the officer’s directions. However, you should know that you have the right to refuse to answer questions from the police and you are entitled to speak with your lawyer, no matter what an officer tells you to the contrary.
