In most DUI cases, the case is initiated at the side of the road once the officer has pulled your over for a traffic infraction. However, before the officer can pull you over, the officer must develop probable cause to survive 4th Amendment scrutiny. The 4th Amendment is part of the Bill of Rights that prohibits unlawful searches and seizures.
If you have been arrested and charged with the offense of DUI and believe that your 4th Amendment Rights have been violated, call 407-473-1233 to schedule your free and confidential case review. Our DUI Attorney is a former DUI Prosecutor who has secured many dismissals for clients who have had their 4th Amendment Rights violated for unlawful traffic stops.
Probable Cause One of the exceptions to the 4th Amendment is that an officer may stop your vehicle if the officer develops probable cause of a civil traffic infraction. Typical infractions that are observed during a DUI include:
Driving too slow
Failing to Maintain a Single Lane
Driving without headlights
Failing to stop for a traffic control device
