Mistakes Texas Police Make During DWI Stops 

The police in Texas have many procedures, rules, and laws they have to follow when investigating crimes and making arrests. If they don’t follow those laws and procedures, they can suffer the consequences. 

For instance, if a Texas police officer forgets to read you your rights after they’ve placed you under arrest, the statements you make to the police could be thrown out, which means they can’t be used as evidence against you.

You should know your rights, because if your rights are violated by the police, a DWI charge could be dismissed in court. The court might not be able to use certain evidence the officers collected against you. This is so police officers don’t engage in unfair practices when making criminal arrests. This is to protect the rights of Texas citizens.

What Kinds of Mistakes Do Police Make During DWI Stops?

When you’re being stopped for a DWI, you might think that you are as good as convicted. You might not know that the police officers often make mistakes during traffic stops. For instance, they could incorrectly administer a breathalyzer test, which could cause the test to become inadmissible in court.

A police officer might pull you over without having a valid reason for doing so. Perhaps they were profiling you, which isn’t allowed. Profiling is where the police use your physical appearance or the appearance of your vehicle to make judgments about you and whether you are up to criminal behavior. If they pull you over without a valid reason, your DWI charge could be thrown out.

Police could make mistakes when administering field sobriety tests. If you believe the police made mistakes, you should talk to a lawyer. It may be possible to get your drunk driving crime dismissed or reduced.

What to Do if You think the Police Made a Mistake During Your DWI Stop

If you believe the police made errors during your DWI traffic stop, you should talk to an attorney right away. Your attorney could help you to get the case dismissed or reduced because of the police’s mistakes. 

You might be able to avoid a conviction for DWI as well as all the negative effects that come with a conviction. A DWI conviction could affect your life forever. If your charges are dismissed, your criminal record will be safe.
