Reasons Why You Got a Shelby County DUI and Why You Should Get a Lawyer

If you have been arrested for a DUI in Shelby County, Alabama, chances are you are feeling confused and overwhelmed about what happened. Why did this have to happen to you? What are you going to do about it?

There are a few common ways to wind up getting arrested for an Alabama DUI. They include:

  • Traffic infraction. The police may have witnessed you make a traffic mistake. Maybe you went through a stop sign or turned down a one-way street. The police pulled you over for making an infraction and later detected that you may have been drinking.
  • You went through a DUI checkpoint. Even though state police are required to announce where and when DUI checkpoints will be taking place, sometimes it can be difficult to attain the correct information of their whereabouts. You may have gone through a DUI checkpoint after it was too late.
  • You were speeding. Similar to making another kind of traffic infraction, you could have been pulled over for speeding and it was after you were stopped that the police suspected you have been under the influence.
