YOU HAVE RIGHTS, EVEN IF STOPPED BY ONE OF THE “SPECIAL” PATROLS OR CHECKPOINTS
Keep your rights in mind, should you find yourself being stopped or investigated for a DUI. You do NOT have to admit anything incriminating, even if you’re not given your Miranda warnings. See this link for details.
Should you find yourself arrested for DUI, you only have 10 days to challenge the license suspension from the DMV, so act quickly.
