Experienced Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: Our society has placed a premium on arresting and convicting for traffic offenses. In early February, 2015 two graduating University of Iowa Football players made the press by getting arrested in the same night for DUI.
Experienced Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: Damond Powell, a former receiver was stopped shortly before 1:30 a.m. for driving with his headlights off. Under the NHTSA manual driving without headlights is so common that it is not even probable that a driver is impaired when he or she is driving with headlights off.
Experienced Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: Mr. Powell had not been taught that talking to the police is always a very, very bad idea. He also did not realize that the Bill of Rights means that he is not required to incriminate himself. Powell admitted that he had been drinking which probably insured that he would be arrested since he was stopped at night. Powell also consented to a search of his person via preliminary breath test gadget. He was over the limit and got arrested.
Experienced Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: John Lowdermilk, a former Safety, was stopped for a burned out brake light. Burned out Brake Lights happen and are not cues of impaired driving. Mr. Lowdermilk also did not know to ask for a Lawyer, stop talking and refuse the so called standardized field sobriety tests.
Experienced Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: Lowdermilk, of course, failed the roadside gymnastics given to establish probable cause to arrest him. Lowdermilk consented, probably not knowing he could refuse, to the preliminary breath test gizmo. The gizmo claimed he was a 0.094 grams per 210 Liters of breath. Lowdermilk was then arrested.
