What should I do if I’m found guilty of drunk driving at Annapolis Labor Day DUI checkpoints?

Being pulled over at Annapolis Labor Day DUI checkpoints is often scary and stressful. You’ll likely be anxious, so you’ll behave abnormally, which puts officers on high alert that you indeed intoxicated. Since the results of these tests is objective, you are really at the mercy of the officers, which means you’ll probably be found guilty of drunking driving in Annapolis. If this is the case, there are a few things you should do.

Hire a Lawyer

Don’t Fight the Officer

Giving the officer an attitude or just being difficult is not advantageous to your situation. You’ll likely incur more charges than you would otherwise because of it. Being compliant can put you in the officer’s good graces, which may benefit you later on.
