10 Visual DUI Detection Clues

There are at least 10 Visual DUI Detection Clues Used By police In Traffic Stops.  Imagine you are driving on the roadway on a Saturday night at 11:00 p.m.. You see a car driving erratically. You wonder if that person is driving his vehicle under the influence of alcohol.

Police officers are well trained to observe the operation of vehicles before initiating a stop. Police officers must have a reasonable basis to stop the operator of the vehicle. However, in stopping the operator, they do not need probable cause to stop the driver.

In my opinion, the 10 most frequently used visual detection clues observed by the police before initiating a stop for suspected DUI are the following:

  1. Weaving
  2. Swerving
  3. A near collision
  4. Unexplained speed increases and decreases
  5. Driving below the posted speed limit
  6. Stopping vehicle in lane of travel for no reason
  7. Driving without headlights at night
  8. Driving down a one way street
  9. Very wide turns
  10. Improper lane change

If you or a family member has had too much to drink, please do not drink and drive. You can call a cab and retrieve your vehicle the next day or call a tow truck to bring your car home and ride with the driver. Remember be safe by keeping everyone safe.!

  • "Mr. Montagna handles my periodic traffic offenses and always gets them dismissed. Depending on the charge he has had me take a driver improvement class, which was actually enjoyable, and my charges are always dismissed. I would never use anybody else for any kind of traffic offense. The cops seem to know him and the bailiff told me one time that I had chosen a good lawyer. Highly recommended."
