6 Secrets About Indiana DUI Checkpoints that the Police WON'T Tell You!

  1. You DON’T have to take a field sobriety test! That’s right. These tests are optional! Most officers neglect to mention that fact.
  2. You can refuse a breath test. However, if you decide to do that, the state will likely use that against you in court in your Indiana DUI case.
  3. Field sobriety testing and breath or blood testing are not always accurate for a variety of reasons.
  4. You cannot be stopped by a police officer unless there is a valid, legal reason! Guess what! Speeding is not one of those reasons.
  5. Police cannot search your car without your permission if you have been stopped for a minor traffic offense.
  6. Your blood alcohol content is only valid as evidence against you if it is taken at the time you were driving, not hours later at the police station. Why? Well your BAC can be higher after it has had a chance to be absorbed into your body. That means you could have been sober when you were pulled over by police.
