Flyer and Book

Thanks for all the comments, likes, etc. We are inspired by the recent attention (January 2015) and will be adding several states. We hope to complete the country within a couple months.


There are two main reasons people come to Fair DUI: Our flyer and our DUI book. Here’s an example of the flyer:
Fair-DUI-FL-Flyer-1

The idea behind the flyer is that you keep it in your car and show it to police at checkpoints and traffic stops. This is NOT for everyone, nor for every situation. To find out whether the flyer is for you, and when you should (and shouldn’t) use it, please read more on our Flyer page.

fair-dui-kindleTo better understand police encounters and how to protect yourself, you should consider buying the Fair DUI book. At this writing (February 2015), the book has 32 reviews on Amazon with an average of 4.7 stars out of 5.

1. On Kindle as low as 99 cents! 2. Paperback from Amazon

Oklahoma Police Captain Lies About Fair DUI Flyer

Oklahoma City news anchor Amanda Taylor did a story last night about whether the Fair DUI flyer would work in Oklahoma.

In that story she quoted Captain Curt McKean:

“There are those who are going to test you from time to time,” said Captain Kurt McKean with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. “Circumventing a checkpoint by holding your driver’s license in the window will not work.”

McKean is the statewide impairment driving enforcement coordinator with the OHP and works DUI checkpoints throughout Oklahoma. He says the law requires you to physically hand over your information.

“State law in the state of Oklahoma, Title 47, requires you any time that you’re stopped by a police officer, not just a state trooper, any law enforcement officer in the state of Oklahoma, you’re required to present a driver’s license and a valid ID,” Capt. McKean said. “We need to physically look at that driver’s license to make sure it’s not been altered, to make sure it actually is their driver’s license.”

We’re sorry to report that Capt. McKean is lying. Oklahoma’s Title 47 does not require drivers to “physically hand over” documents. Title 47, Section 6-112 states:

Every licensee shall have his or her driver license in his or her immediate possession at all times when operating a motor vehicle and shall display the same upon demand of a peace officer.

The statute says “display.” In some states the laws require drivers to “surrender” their documents. While we believe such statutes unconstitutionally infringe on the Fourth Amendment, that doesn’t matter in Oklahoma because the statute doesn’t say it.

Inspired by this story, we have created a Fair DUI flyer for Oklahoma. As always, we encourage drivers to discuss this with a local attorney before using it.

New Flyers for Pennsylvania and West Virginia

We’ve added flyers for Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

The front of the PA flyer is below. Please click the above links to go to each state page and see the new flyers.

The good news is:

1. Neither state requires tickets be signed.
2. Both states use clear language indicating you have to display or exhibit your license, not hand it over.

But as always, we recommend discussing this with a lawyer in your home state before using the flyer.

Two States Added and Two New Videos

Fair DUI Flyer-NC-front

Now that the media burst is over, we’re back to work. We’ve added two new states and two new videos.

First up, above, is the front of the North Carolina flyer. See the whole thing including the pdf of it on our North Carolina DUI page.

We also added Virginia which is a tricky state because of a statutory issue about police demanding a “written promise” to appear on the ticket. So we added a written promise on the front of the card. That’s potential for a big argument but sooner or later we’ll find out the hard way how that works.

Here’s a link: Virginia DUI page.

We are also working on a smart phone app that would allow drivers to digitally sign tickets, including this kind of written promise. We’ll update when that’s ready.

We’ve also started a serious of videos about the flyer, and we did the first two of them.

First, we did a video talking about who should use the flyer and who should not:

The second video talks about the difference between a police order and a request, and how you should deal with both:

Revising FairDUI.org: State Directory

We are starting to revise our website. Listing 50 flyers on one page was not going to make sense, so we’ve now restructured the site to include a state-by-state directory.

Click the following link for our State DUI directory.

We have flyers for 11 states so far. We hope to get more in soon.

Cop vs. Lawyer – A Great Interview

T.J. Bloch of Policing Black and White

T.J. Bloch of Policing Black and White

Fair DUI’s Warren Redlich was interviewed on February 21st for a radio show (or podcast) by Greensboro reserve police officer T.J. Bloch. T.J. runs the website Policing Black and White, a growing website. You should be able to see the audio player below.

It was a great conversation though unfortunately we had to cut it short. We’re talking about doing another one soon. If you can’t see the player, this is the link to the full MP3 file.

Bloch is a great guy who was forced, while on active duty, to shoot a woman who was trying to stab him with a knife. Partly as a result of that incident along with other traumatic experiences he retired early from active duty and became a reserve officer.
