Although the state of Colorado is very strict with DUI offenders, it is equally as dedicated to protecting the rights of Colorado citizens. Remember that even if you have been arrested for DUI, you have rights and it is against the law for those rights to be violated.

The state of Colorado has what are called “presumptive” DUI laws. An officer can arrest you without the use of a BAC test if your driving is deemed reckless. If you are stopped and found to be driving with a BAC of 0.05 you will be charged with Driving While Ability is Impaired (DWAI). This charge is a lesser form of DUI. If your BAC is 0.08 or greater then you will be charged with Driving Under the Influence.

Our Colorado Springs DUI Attorney Questions Probable Cause

All of that said, the officer must have had probable cause to pull you over in order for a DUI arrest to be legally valid. For example you may have made a bad turn, swerved into another lane, or have a nonfunctioning tail light that would give a police officer a reason to stop you on the road.

After you are pulled over, the officer want to see your driver’s license, registration, and proof of vehicle insurance. Meanwhile the officer observe you closely and try to detect any signs of intoxication by asking you a bunch of questions, looking at your eyes, trying to smell your breath, etc. If you appear to be under the influence, you will be asked to step out of the vehicle and submit to either field sobriety tests, a breath test, or both.
