Connecticut DUI

Fair DUI Flyer-Connecticut-front

We have researched Connecticut laws and believe the Fair DUI flyer should work well in the state.

Fair DUI Flyer-Connecticut.002

State law requires you to physically surrender your license and other documents. However we believe your Fourth Amendment rights are superior to those state laws. If the police want to write you a ticket for refusing to surrender your license, that’s fine. It’s far less serious than a DUI charge.

As with all other states, please discuss this with a local lawyer before using the Fair DUI flyer.

    I don’t think this flyer is a good idea in Connecticut. The controlling case law allows the police to ask you questions, which could probably be reasonably expanded to “allows them to smell your breath”. By refusing to roll down your window, you might be giving them probable cause to actually detain you and perform an old fashioned field sobriety or BAC blow test on you. Also, if you are going to hold your license up against your window, why not just attach it to the outside in a re-sealable ziplock to avoid the cops saying that you didn’t physically surrender your documents? I don’t mean to poo-poo this whole idea, I’m just trying to find a workable solution for Connecticut drivers because I feel that checkpoints should be outlawed.

    How legitimate can this be when there’s a typo on the back part? “what might happen in you don’t open your window” lol

    How legitimate can this really be when this flyer is instructing you to violate a law?

    Why would you get a DUI charge for rolling down your window and surrendering your license? To me, this sounds like a “how to” on how to get away with driving while drunk. Tell that to the families of the children you just killed down the road. What’s next? How to get away with taking a knife onto an airplane?

    Thank you for this!

    A question. Is the “not required to sign or post bond Ch. 881b” [Sec. 51-164n] determined by the lack of a stated requirement in the section to actually sign a summons for infraction?

    Thanks again! This is great work!
