Orlando DUI Lawyer Explains Reasons You Can Be Pulled Over for DUI

Back To DUI-DWI Video Help Page

As an Orlando DUI lawyer, I’ve seen a number of cases where people were below the legal limit for their blood alcohol content but still had to face drunk driving charges. As I explained in the above video, it is not just the Breathalyzer test that is taken into account when you are being charged with a DUI. Even if you blew below a 0.08 on the Breathalyzer, the arresting officer is going to take many other factors about your driving and your behavior into account.

Unsafe or reckless driving that a police officer is going to consider in a DUI charge include:

  • Weaving across lanes
  • Drifting towards the shoulder or middle line
  • Sudden swerving
  • Turning slowly and with a wide radius
  • Braking suddenly
  • Speeding up or slowing down significantly for no apparent reason
  • Driving without headlights at night
  • Being slow to respond to changing traffic signals
  • Tailgating another car
  • Making an unsafe lane change
  • Stopping in the middle of the road for no apparent reason

Behavior That May Lead to DUI Arrest

Any experienced DUI attorney will tell you that it is not just your driving behavior and Breathalyzer results that a police officer can use to arrest you for drunk driving. Once you have been pulled over and are talking to an officer, there are a number of other factors that will be taken into account with your DUI case. The officer will look for:

  • Difficulty getting out of the car
  • Slurred speech
  • Smell of alcohol on the driver’s breath
  • Balance problems
  • Difficulty answering questions
  • Difficulty with field sobriety tests

How an Orlando DUI Lawyer Can Help

One thing that makes drunk driving cases tricky is that a lot of the evidence is subjective. Even the field tests, which are supposed to provide solid evidence that you either were or were not driving under the influence, are largely based on the arresting officer’s opinion of your performance.

You should talk with an attorney if you blew under a 0.08 on the Breathalyzer and are being charged with a DUI. Law enforcement has based the charge of DUI on the fact that they believe, due to the totality of the circumstances, that your normal faculties were impaired to the extent that you should not have been driving. A good defense attorney will work to challenge the evidence against you and make your DUI defense as strong as possible.
