Other People

Most people think DUI laws are about other people. That changes when it happens to you, or someone close to you. DUI charges are often filed against people just like you, and you could be next. This set of pages should give you some idea of who gets arrested.

  1. Could you please advise if this permissible in MA. ? If not, do you know the status of when it will becoming available in MA?

    Thank you

    1. In pa the law says you must “Exhibit.” Surrender of a document into the temporary possession of a person for the purpose of examining the document. this came from title 75 pa traffic code in section 1, 102. Definitions = “Exhibit.”

      1. so the pa dui flier is wrong. in pa you must hand them your drivers license.
        or they can cite you.

      2. As the instructions on the back of the flyer say, if the officer gives you a clear order to hand over your license you should do so.

        You are welcome to make your own version if you like. I do not claim any kind of copyright on this.

    1. Constitutionally, checkpoints are not legal in any state as it clearly violates the 4th amendment of “unreasonable search and seizure”. KNOW your constitution and bill of rights and KNOW your laws! 😉

      1. Constitutionally, checkpoints ARE legal. Check out Supreme Court case Michigan Dept. of State Police v. Sitz (1990). The Supreme Court stated that the interest of public safety and removing drunk drivers from the roads outweighs the minor intrusion of the motorist.

  2. i would really like you guys to do a maryland flyer. i think what you are doing is great. education is key if we are to retain and take advantage of the rights we do have. thanks

  3. Would you please let me know if this is allowed for indiana? I’m a bartender and often smell like alcohol after getting off work late. Go through so many of these a year that it’s ridiculous, even though I don’t drink. Thank you and keep up the good work!

  4. Will using this sign in Hawaii hold up in court? An attorney friend here said that the police will force you out of the car and arrest you.

    1. Does your attorney friend say it would be legal for police to do that? Or would it rather be a basis for getting any arrest thrown out in court?

  5. This would be great in Canada as we have a lot of ride checks here.
    Could you possibly be able to check into this for your northern friends??

  6. Does this apply or How does this apply when you pulled over for routine traffic stop? I would like to protect my rights when they pull me over for no reason.

    1. Yes, it was originally designed for traffic stops. Checkpoints are a bonus and the method should work better in them, but most police encounters occur in traffic stops. Please discuss with a local lawyer before using.

  7. I’m from Vancouver, BC. Canada. I went through your brilliantly outlined and well educated website about dui’s and checkpoint and what to do in such a situation. You’ve got most, if not all, of the states. You’re a legend! I ask of you kindly to perhaps think of making one for my area. the police here are ridiculous and need to get off their high horse.

    1. The fair dui method is based on the US Constitution. You should talk to a Canadian lawyer.

  8. Will you have any flyers for Delaware? I don’t drink, & can’t stand the attitudes of the cops around here.

  9. I was pretty pleased to discover this great site.
    I need to to thank you for ones time just for this wonderful read!!

    i also have you book-marked to check out new things in your site.
