What To Do If You Have Been
Pulled Over For A  DWI In Peekskill?

5 Ways You Can Help Yourself If You Have Been Pulled Over By The Police For A  DWI:

  1. Remain calm-  Police officers can interpret nervousness in your voice as a sign that you are hiding something or are intoxicated. Whether you have consumed alcohol or not, remaining calm is a good way to ensure that a police officer will not question your sobriety.
  2. Always have a clean center console or glove box – Fumbling through these compartments to find your registration or insurance can be misinterpreted for intoxication. By keeping a glove box or center console neat and clean, your documents are ready to be presented.
  3. Do not consent to a search of the car –  Any evidence found in your car could be used to support a DWI or a chemical-drug conviction; do not allow the officer to perform a search.
  4. Get a blood test after release –  Because alcohol detection devices can be faulty, it’s a good idea to measure your BAC (blood alcohol concentration) after arrest. At trial, your attorney can use that evidence to support your drunk driving defense.
  5. Contact an experienced DWI lawyer as soon as possible – An experienced attorney will advise in a manner that will protect your rights and maximize their ability to defend you, especially against criminal DWI charges.

These tips are appropriate in Westchester County, New York, or any other state.  Being polite while knowing your rights is always going to help your DWI attorney, provide the best defense against a drunk driving charge.

DUI, DWI, DWAI –
You’ll need a lawyer in Westchester, NYS, or out-of-state!

Though DUI is a common legal term used by many states, New York does not actually use the term. In New York, there are two main “drunk driving” charges: DWI and DWAI. DWI stands for “Driving While Intoxicated,” while DWAI stands for “Driving While Ability Impaired.”  According to the Department of Motor Vehicles, there are some major differences between a DWI and a DWAI:

  • DWAI

                –BAC (blood alcohol content) is between 0.05 and 0.07 percent

-Less severe than DWI

-Fines up to $1,000, up to 3 years probation, a possible jail sentence of one year

Consequences Of Getting A DWI

DWI6-month automatic revocation of your license

-BAC of at least 0.08 percent

-Potential jail time, fines, probation

-Mandatory license revocation

Installation of an ignition interlock device for a minimum of 1 year required at the driver’s expense

-Additional penalties may be required

If you have been charged with a DWAI or a DWI you will need the help of an experienced defense lawyer like Robert M Nachamie
