30 Day Warning

You can fight the suspension either by requesting an administrative license suspension (ALS) hearing or by installing an ignition interlock device on your vehicle. No decision should be made without first consulting with an experienced Bremen DUI Lawyer.

Common Signs of Intoxication in Bremen DUI Cases

Police officers are always looking for signs of intoxication but especially when you have been pulled over for DUI. Some of the signs officers are looking for include:

  • Odor of Alcohol: Officers like to get you talking to try and determine if they can smell alcohol on your breath.
  • Speech Issues: From slurred speech to slow verbal responses, your speech pattern can change after you have been drinking. Officers are paying attention to how your words sound and if you are able to comprehend what they are saying.
  • Difficulty with Simple Requests: The officer will likely request your license and registration, and they are watching to see if you can follow directions but also how you conduct yourself. They are watching to see if you fumble with your license or if you fall getting out of the car.
  • Emotional Responses: While it is normal for people to get emotional when they get pulled over, officers are looking for signs of intoxication such as shouting at people, cursing, or being overly friendly.

Any of these signs can lead an officer to believe you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. However, these are not the only things they are looking for. Officers also consider how you were driving that justified the initial stop.

There are numerous driving behaviors that can indicate the driver is intoxicated. Some of these include:

  • Making wide turns
  • Difficulty maintaining lane
  • Slow driving
  • Erratic braking
  • Inconsistent signaling
  • Delayed responses to traffic signals
  • Driving with the headlights turned off
  • Almost hitting objects or other cars
  • Stopping for no reason
