What Should I Do if I Am Pulled Over in Houston, Texas?

We all know the feeling we get in our stomachs whenever we hear the sirens and see those flashing lights. Even if you are obeying all traffic and safety laws, you still have a moment of panic, worried about what will happen next. What should you do when you are pulled over on suspicion of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)? What are your rights? What should you avoid doing to keep matters from getting worse? Skilled and experienced Houston DWI defense lawyer Brian Ayson of the Ayson Law Firm tells you what you need to know if you get pulled over on suspicion of driving while intoxicated in Houston.

What should you do when you are pulled over?

If you are pulled over on suspicion of DWI, or for any traffic-related reason, stay calm and remember your rights. Be courteous, but do not let the police get away with more than they are authorized to do. Generally, you should do the following:

  • Pull over your vehicle when and where it is safe to do so.
  • Wait for the police to approach before rolling down your window.
  • Comply with officer requests for documents (license, registration, proof of insurance).
  • Do not get out of your car unless you are specifically asked to do so. Getting out of the car before the police approach is generally seen as an act of aggression. The officers could fear for their safety and draw their weapons.
  • Avoid over-explaining yourself (for example, trying to justify speeding by saying there was an emergency). You are most likely just giving the police evidence to use against you.
  • Ask for permission before reaching into your pockets or glove box to get your documents.
  • Be polite and courteous, but do not do their work for them. Do not admit to any illegal conduct, including speeding, consuming alcohol, taking drugs, or violating any other traffic law or regulation.
  • You can politely refuse to answer any questions that might incriminate you.
  • If you are asked to take a sobriety test, you have the right to refuse. We generally advise against field sobriety tests (touching your nose, standing on one leg, etc.). Refusing to take a blood or breath test, however, carries additional consequences, which we discuss below.
  • If you are arrested, call a DWI attorney (or call a friend or family member and ask them to find one for you) as soon as you get the chance to make a phone call.

What are your rights when you are pulled over?

It is important to know what you can and cannot do when you are pulled over, as well as what the police are and are not allowed to do. Below, we explain your rights under Texas state law:

  • You must provide your driver’s license, proof of insurance, and registration when asked.
  • You must exit the vehicle if asked by the police. Most routine traffic stops will not require you to get out of the car, but if the situation calls for it, and the police ask, you must comply.
  • You have the right to know why the officer pulled you over. They must have reasonable suspicion of some infraction or crime to pull you over. This could be something as minor as speeding, failing to signal, or having a taillight out.
  • You do not need to consent to a search of your vehicle. The police must have probable cause to believe a crime has been committed in order to search your vehicle without your consent and a warrant. They must have more than a hunch–for example, if they see an open alcohol container or drug paraphernalia, then they can search your car.
  • The police cannot arrest you for arguing. It generally pays to be courteous during traffic stops, but you cannot be arrested simply for arguing. If the officer decides you are getting too heated and are threatening them, however, they might try to charge you with disorderly conduct or assault.
  • You have the right to record the encounter, even if the officers object. If you choose to record the encounter, for example by using your phone, be careful: You do not want to escalate the situation unnecessarily and agitate an officer who might otherwise be lenient. Make sure to inform the officer that you are recording the incident so that they do not mistake your small device for a weapon.
  • You must show the police your handgun or concealed weapon permits if you have a gun in your vehicle. You should let the officers know that you have a legal weapon in the vehicle to avoid accidentally escalating the confrontation.
  • You have the right to remain silent. Other than providing your documents as mentioned above, you do not have to say anything during your stop. You do not have to incriminate yourself by answering questions like, “Why were you speeding?” “Why didn’t you signal?” or “Have you had any alcohol tonight?” Answers to these questions are likely to be used against you. You may politely decline to answer.

Can you refuse to take a sobriety test?

This is very important: You do not have to take a sobriety test just because the police request it, except under certain circumstances. That includes field sobriety tests, breathalyzer tests, and blood tests. Generally, field sobriety tests are inaccurate, and drivers may do more harm than good by agreeing to comply. Blood and breath tests, however, are another matter.

If you refuse to take a breath or blood test, the Texas government can take away your driver’s license (provided you do not request and succeed at an ALR Hearing). The police will ask you to sign a form stating you understand the consequences of refusing to take the test, and evidence of your refusal can be used against you to prove your guilt. Additionally, if you have prior DWI convictions or if someone was seriously hurt in an accident at the time of your arrest, the police could force you to take a test even without your consent.
