Question: What are some of the driving behaviors that police officers look for in identifying suspected drunk drivers in Alabama?
Answer: In the police officer’s training for DUI detection, they learn from NHTSA—the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration—20 different visual clues to suspect somebody of DUI while driving at night. Some of these include turning with a wide radius, straddling the lane divider, almost striking another car or object, weaving, driving on something other than the designated roadway, swerving, stopping for no cause or going under 10 miles per hour of the limit. As well, most DUI cases are begun from a simple traffic violation such as speeding, improper equipment violations, failing to stop at a stop sign.
