We’ve created a Fair DUI flyer for Virginia. The front is above. Back side and pdf are at bottom.
Please note that Virginia is a tricky state. The law does indicate they can require drivers to sign a “written promise” to appear. We’ve added a “written promise” to the front of the flyer which we believe satisfies the law.
But the police may not accept that. They can arrest you but then they’re required to take you promptly to a magistrate to get a summons issued.
If you’ve had any alcohol at all, or have any medication or drug in your system, the visit to the magistrate should happen first and that would serve to delay any DUI or drug testing. Delays like that are usually helpful.
Of course, you should discuss this with a lawyer from Virginia rather than simply relying on advice from a website like this.
