Unlawful Police Stop Lawyer in Riverside

When can a police officer pull someone over for DUI?

A common DUI myth in California is the belief that an officer can pull someone over at random to conduct a DUI investigation. This is not true. In order to make a lawful police stop, a law enforcement officer must have reasonable grounds to believe that a motorist is driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The most common signs that a motorist might exhibit include:

  • Wandering across lane lines
  • Erratic speed (too slow/too fast)
  • Unnecessary or excessive braking
  • Ignoring traffic signs and signals
  • Headlights off at night

An officer can only pull someone over if they are showing signs such as those listed above. If you have been pulled over and consequently arrested for DUI, but the officer had no cause to suspect you of drunk driving in the first place, you may have means to defend yourself from a wrongful DUI conviction.
