No Probable Cause? You Have A Defense.
A police officer must have probable cause to stop you. This means he or she must have a reason. The reason must be sufficient and not merely based on a history of previous violations. Examples of probable cause include:
- Equipment violations
- Swerving across lanes
- Running a red light
If the officer sees evidence of intoxication, you can be asked to do field sobriety tests. Our law firm has been successful in having cases dismissed, or charges reduced, due to illegal procedure involving probable cause. If there was not reasonable cause to stop you, the case can be thrown out. Make sure you discuss all the points of your case with one of the Queens County DWI Traffic Stop Attorney Lawyers at our office. You can do that by calling (718) 793-5700 for a Free Case Evaluation.
The Refusal To Take A Breathalyzer Test
Our attorney’s opinion is that you should almost always agree to take the Breathalyzer test. If you do not take it, your driver’s license will be revoked for a minimum of six months. Additionally, you will not be eligible for a drinking and driving program. The drinking and driving program can help get your driving privileges reinstated sooner than six months.
