How to Investigate DUI

The first step of a DUI investigation is usually a police officer making observations while you are driving your vehicle. Officers are trained to look for particular things that a driver is probably under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Among the clues that the officers look for include: driving outside the lane, weaving, making wide turns, problems stopping, responding slowly to traffic signals, striking or nearly striking objects, driving recklessly, erratic speed changes, driving without headlights, improper turns and unsafe lane changes. If the drive of the car gets into a wreck they may even call an investigator to inspect the scene.

For a police officer to make a traffic stop, he/she must have reasonable suspicion that more investigation will reveal you are driving while under the influence of something. A DUI attorney will review the report of the officer and cruiser video to decide if the traffic stop was justified. If the officer comes to a conclusion that you are under the influence, he/she will arrest you.

That conclusion should include consideration of every evidence indicating you are driving under influence, as well as all evidence indicating you were not under influence. If you need any information on insurance investigating please contact CRESCENT INVESTIGATIONS, to see if they can help!
