Q: Attorney Tully, if I drive after having a couple of drinks, but I am driving fine, am I safe from the police?
A: Maybe not. Why? Because the police can pull you over for reasons unrelated to your driving ability. For example, if your car is in violation of the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code, the officer has a basis to pull you over even if you are not driving erratically. Something as minor as your car’s license plate lamp being out is enough to stop your car. Then if the officer smells the odor of alcohol coming from your breath… We routinely handle DUI cases. Call me.
