Common Errors Law Enforcement Officers Make

  • Not Having Sufficient Probably Cause/Reasonable Suspicion to Stop or to Arrest: 
    Before law enforcement officials can make a DUI traffic stop, they must have reasonable suspicion that a crime was committed in their presence to stop a car. To make an arrest a higher standard is needed called probable cause as defined in the California Penal Code §836(a). If law enforcement officials do not have sufficient probable cause, they cannot legally make the DUI traffic arrest.
  • Failure to Read Miranda Rights:
    In some cases, a police officer may fail to read a driver his/her Miranda Rights before placing the person under arrest. Miranda Rights are read to inform the person of his/her right to remain silent, right to an attorney, and right to have an attorney appointed to him/her. If the officer does not read the driver his/her Miranda Rights, anything the driver said before his/her arrest may not be admissible in court.
  • Inaccurate Field Sobriety Test Results:
    After a person is suspected of drunk driving, he/she may be asked to perform a series of field sobriety tests for the police officer. It is up to the police officer to determine if the person has passed or failed his/her field sobriety tests. The police officer must closely monitor the person’s balance, coordination, and motor skills while the person performs the test. It is believed that if a person is under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, he/she will have poor coordination. However, a person can perform poorly during the field sobriety tests for many reasons other than being intoxicated. Some of these reasons may include: slippery road conditions, poor lighting, poor instructions, nervousness, lack of coordination, and medical conditions that impair the person’s mental or physical coordination.
