If I’m Pulled Over by a Police Officer and Asked If I’ve Been Drinking What Should I Say?

For the average motorist, looking in the rearview mirror and seeing flashing lights is, at the very least, an annoyance. Once a law enforcement officer has pulled you over, the original reason for the stop, however, could turn into something more serious. The most common example of this is when a routine traffic stop becomes a driving under the influence, or DUI, investigation. What is the best way to handle this if it happens to you? Specifically, you may be wondering “If I’m pulled over by a police officer and asked if I’ve been drinking what should I say?” Unfortunately, there is no universal answer to that question; however, a better understanding of the consequences of your possible answers might help you decide how to respond.
