Police officers can pull you over and conduct a traffic stop on your vehicle if they have a REASONABLE SUSPICION that the driver of the vehicle may have violated the law. The reasons for the stop may include: making an unsafe lane change, speeding, failing to stop at a red traffic signal, driving too slow, weaving within or outside your lane of traffic, or other unsafe driving conduct.
After being pulled over, the police officer will investigate you further, looking to find PROBABLE CAUSE to arrest you. This may include exhibiting indications such as: having open containers in the vehicle, stumbling, the smell of alcohol, slurred speech, the driver’s admission to consuming alcohol, glazed eyes, or other indication of being under the influence.
