Points to remember about DUI cases

Drunk driving cases are fairly common, but that doesn't mean that every point about these cases is common knowledge. There are some points about a drunk driving case that you might not know, especially if you are facing your first drunk driving charge. Understanding these points might help you to understand what is going on a bit better.

The first thing that you should know is that you have the right to remain silent when police officers pull you over. This right is in place even before you are read your Miranda rights. The officers don't have to read your rights for you to invoke the right to remain silent. You can invoke it as soon as you are pulled over.

Another point to know is that you might not have to go to trial on the drunk driving charge. Many drinking and driving cases are resolved without a trial. In some cases, you might be able to participate in a diversion program or end your case with a plea bargain. These aren't possible in every case, so it is important for you to carefully explore the options that pertain to your case.

There is a chance that you will have to have an ignition interlock device installed on the vehicles you drive. If this is the case, you will likely have to cover the cost. That is on top of the other expenses that are associated with your case.

Your DUI defense strategy should be one that addresses your case's specifics. This can mean having to think about the arrest, as well as other points in the case.
