Important suggestions for your Kodiak Island DUI

Alaska DUI laws are tough so if you drink too much and then drive, you should be prepared to receive a Kodiak Island DUI.  Punishments for driving under the influence in Kodiak Island include huge fines, having your driver's license taken away, going to jail, having an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle and more.  Because of this, it is imperative that you contact a successful DUI defense lawyer to help you with your case.  In addition, you will want to consider the many ways you can help yourself.     

Some tips to help you with your Kodiak Island DUI include:    

 (Before you have been arrested)

  • When you are being pulled over, be sure to indicate that you are doing so by using your turn signal properly.  At this point, you will also want to attempt not to make anymore traffic infractions. 

  • As the law enforcement officer comes to your vehicle, have your registration, your insurance information and your driver's license ready.  
  • Remember what the office says to you and have them repeat it and clarify it if you do not understand something they said.  You do not want to have any misunderstandings. 
  • Let them know that you want to speak to your drunk driving attorney as soon as possible.    

(After you have been arrested)

  • See if you can have an independent blood test performed.  If not, you can still have this completed at a hospital once you have been released from jail.  
  • Schedule your Department of Motor Vehicle's administrative hearing.  You only have a small amount of time to do this so make sure either you or your DUI attorney sets this up.     
  • Be able to recall the details of the incident including everything before, during and afterwards.  Your attorney will need this information for your defense.  
  • Take pictures at the scene of the crime.
  • You should be sure to have an expert witness hired for your case.  In addition, have your breath test analyzed.   
  • If you have not yet done so, contact a drunk driving defense attorney to help you with your Kodiak Island DUI.  

Remember, the best way not to get a DUI in Kodiak Island is to not drink and drive.  However, if you have already received a DUI, you will need assistance and a skilled DUI defense lawyer is just a call away.  At 1.800.DUI.LAWS, we have accomplished and trustworthy DUI attorneys in your area who are ready to compete to represent you so call now!
