Challenging the Stop

Want to Challenge a DUI Stop in the San Francisco Bay Area? Call Us.

A driver’s license is a privilege, not a right. When you got your California driver’s license, you gave state police and law enforcement authorities implied consent to pull you over if they suspected DUI, reckless driving or other illegal acts. But if the police pull you over and make you undergo a field sobriety test without probable cause to suspect driving while intoxicated, it is in violation of your civil rights. When you get behind the wheel of a car, you assume responsibilities, but you do not give up your civil rights.

Did You Know?

Depending upon circumstances, California police checkpoints to inspect for drunk drivers may be in violation of your civil rights. If you were arrested for drunk driving as a result of a mandatory stop at a police check point, call us right away.
