3 habits that make it more likely you’ll be stopped for DWI

On Behalf of | Oct 15, 2023 | Drunk Driving

If you’re concerned about getting stopped for a Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) offense, it’s crucial to understand that certain habits and behaviors can increase your risk.

DWI is a serious offense that can result in severe legal and personal consequences. To help you avoid this predicament, consider minimizing these habits.

Excessive alcohol consumption

One of the most obvious and common reasons people get stopped for DWI is excessive alcohol consumption. Law enforcement officers are trained to spot erratic driving behaviors that indicate impairment, such as swerving, speeding or driving too slowly. If a driver exhibits any of these signs, they’re more likely to attract the attention of the police. To avoid this situation, always designate a sober driver or use a rideshare service if you’ve been drinking. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Ignoring traffic laws

Drivers who consistently run red lights, fail to use their turn signals or make illegal U-turns increase the chances of being pulled over by law enforcement. These actions draw attention to a vehicle, and law enforcement officers assume that its driver lacks any regard for the road rules. To minimize your risk of being stopped for DWI, always obey traffic laws, be a responsible driver and drive defensively.

Driving at odd hours

Driving at odd hours, especially late at night, can increase your chances of being stopped for DWI. Law enforcement officers often patrol during these hours, specifically looking for impaired drivers. If they notice your vehicle on the road during these times, they may be more inclined to pull you over, even if you’re not exhibiting any clear signs of impairment. If you need to drive during these hours, try to ensure you’re well-rested and not under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Being alert and sober will significantly reduce the likelihood of getting stopped for DWI.

Suppose you get arrested for driving while intoxicated; don’t hesitate to exercise your right to seek legal guidance. A seasoned professional can help minimize the legal consequences associated with a DWI charge and may even be able to get the charges dropped, depending on the unique ins and outs of your circumstances.
