Tips for DUI Checkpoints
If you drive around Mississippi roads for long enough, you are bound to run into a police sobriety checkpoint. In fact, if you’ve never experienced one, chances are you know someone who has. While not regularly practiced in every state, in Mississippi, it is a popular tool used by police to catch motorists who are driving while under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs.
If you encounter a police checkpoint, it is important to understand your rights. Below are four tips to help you stay on the right side of the law when going through a sobriety checkpoint:
- Be careful about what you say: In any interaction with the police, be careful not to give away any more information than is necessary. In fact, beyond basic identifying and insurance information, you may not need to say anything further. If an officer continues in their line of questioning, you can state that you are invoking your Fourth Amendment right to remain silent.
- Remain polite and comply with basic requests: While you do not have to answer an officer’s every question, do your best to remain calm, collected, and courteous. On one hand, this can help to demonstrate that you have nothing to hide. It can also help prevent your behavior from being interpreted as aggressive or resistant.
- Searches may require consent: An officer might escalate an interaction past basic questions and ask to search you or your vehicle. While it may sound like a command, the officer actually needs your consent unless he or she possesses a warrant. You are not required to participate.
- Field sobriety tests are voluntary: Field sobriety tests also require your consent. Common tests include the one-leg stand, the walk and turn, and the horizontal gaze nystagmus test. These tests are not only voluntary, they can also be inaccurate and unscientific. In fact, your participation may only serve to give an officer evidence to use against you in the courtroom.
