Criminal laws in Texas are showing no signs of letting up on persons accused of DWI and other alcohol related criminal offenses. We at the Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates want to share a few key tips to help you learn more about your rights as a motorist.
The Right To Refuse Road-Side Interrogation
You don’t have to answer questions from the law enforcement officer about your destination or origination points, what you ate or drank, or medical conditions that you may or may not have.
The Right To Refuse Search
There is no need for you to violate your own right against an unlawful search and seizure when the police will (sometimes) do the job for you. If the police officer does violate your Constitutional Rights, and you have your cell phone set to “record”, we might be able to make great things happen for with the use of the legal & criminal justice system(s) in Texas.
Important To Remember
Its important to remember the saying, “You can beat the rap, but you can’t beat the ride”.
Mouthing off to police about “your rights”, and having an unsavory attitude won’t help you during your experience with police officers. Be sure to use your head during all police encounters. We’ve all seen the news and know that volatile police encounters can easily escalate and become nightmarish for all parties involved.
