Unfortunately, every night a motorist in Berks County PA gets stopped on suspicion of Drunk Driving. The stop may occur at a DUI checkpoint, after a minor traffic violation or perhaps a motor vehicle accident. The officer will notice the DUI indicators – blood shoot eyes, slurred speech, odor of alcohol and ask the motorist to step out of the vehicle. The driver will then be subjected to a series of field sobriety tests – the finger to nose test, one legged stand and walk and turn. A preliminary breath test is done and the driver finds himself in the back of a patrol car on the way to the DUI center to have his blood drawn. Later, he is told to call a friend to pick him up and he’s sent on his way.
The next day the driver is going to start to wonder what’s going to happen. Am I going to be charged with a DUI? Am I going to jail? Am I going to lose my license? What about my car insurance?
