You have probably had too much to drink if the steering wheel is on the wrong side of the car

“He was unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and his eyes were glassy and blood shot…he admitted to consuming alcohol prior to driving.”

Nearly every California police arrest report I read involving a drunk driving (DUI) arrest contains the above in the narrative. I have fantastic clients, but it would certainly make the suppression hearing a bit easier if my clients stopped telling officers, “Yes, but I only had two drinks!” That’s sure to lead to a DUI arrest in California just about every time.

But the suppression hearing…well, the suppression hearing is a rant for another day. I did have a point I was getting to here: we’re all doing our best out there, but it pays to be informed. Knowledge is power; cliche but true.
