What to do When Stopped by SPIDRE
SPIDRE may be an “elite task force” with the sole intent of stopping intoxicated drivers, but these state troopers are not above the law. They can request you undergo field sobriety testing or submit to a Breathalyzer, but you maintain the right to refuse.
You also have a right to refuse to answer any questions you feel may be leading you to incriminate yourself and to request the presence of a DUI lawyer if arrested. You can remain firm in your request to have an attorney present, but remain as civil as possible at all times when dealing with police.
If you are in need of a DUI attorney in Rockville or surrounding areas of Maryland, please contact the Law Offices of Leon Geller to schedule a free consultation.
