When it comes to DUI, Police Officers Know the Signs

What are some of the clues that police officers are trained to observe in a stop for suspected DUI in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Newport News or any other city or county in Virginia?

 

Trained police officers will use their senses to detect clues for driving under the influence after the initial stop.  The officers will use their sight to observe blood shot eyes, disheveled clothingpale face, or any marks or bruises.  Additionally, trained officers will observe individuals for swaying while walking, swaying while standing, leaning on objects for support, stumbling or loss of balance.

The police officer will use their hearing to listen for slurred speech, abusive language, inconsistent statements, and admissions of drinking.  Officers also listen for yelling or loud talking.

Drinking responsibly (or not drinking at all) is the best guard against getting pulled over in the first place.
