In this video Mr. Taylor(retired) talks about what a person can expect an officer to do when they are pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence and gives some general advice as to what a person should and should not do when they get pulled over. It is important to have a good attitude and be cooperative with the officer, but a person is not required to volunteer information. There is no law that requires a person to answer the officer’s questions and whatever helpful things a person says will never end up in the officer’s report anyway. Mr. Taylor strongly suggests that people not take the field sobriety tests because all they can do is hurt them. Also the officer may ask the person to take a PAS or PBT test, which is an alcohol sensor test. A person is not required to take this test unless they are under the age of twenty-one. If it is offered to a person who is not under arrest and they are not under twenty-one, Mr. Taylor advises that they not take the field sobriety tests.
