What People Charged With a DUI Typically Get Pulled Over For

The police stop vehicles for many reasons. Some officers are conducting routine traffic stops while others are looking for reasons to stop a vehicle to see if the person has been drinking or to see if the person has contraband in the car. Even if you are driving the speed limit, obeying traffic signals, and not driving abnormally, there are many tactics police officers can use to have a valid reason to pull you over.

What did I get pulled over for?

This is a common question asked by many people when being stopped by an officer. Common reasons for being pulled over where a DUI charge is given include broken taillight/headlight, broken license plate light, and driving with your headlights off. Some of the more obvious offenses include speeding, swerving, driving in the wrong direction, and improper or no use of turning signals. These are a select few ways that an officer can pull you over to investigate if you have been drinking.
