Kevin Flesch, DUI Attorney

Flesch Law has tips to help you in the event you get stopped by the police, suspected for a DUI. (Driving Under the Influence)

Speak to the officer as little as possible. They are looking for bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and the smell of alcohol. Do what you can to minimize your interaction with the officer.

Have your drivers license and insurance easily available for the officer. Again, keep the interaction brief.

If asked if you want to take a roadside test – just say no. These are voluntary.

If the officer feels that he/she has probable cause for arrest, they will arrest you. They will ask if you want a breath or blood test. Take the blood test. If you refuse either test, you will lose your license up to a year.

Colorado DUI Statistics:

  • One in three Colorado drivers arrested for DUI has a previous DUI arrest.
  • Crashes involving alcohol and drugs have twice the number of injuries and deaths as crashes without alcohol and drug involvement. They usually involve higher speeds, and often both the driver and any passengers are not wearing seatbelts.
  • Colorado lowered the legal blood alcohol limit from .10 to .08 in 2004 in an effort to tighten the state’s DUI laws.
  • Estimates place the average expense for a drunk driving conviction at anywhere between $7,000 and $10,000. Costs associated with DUIs can include such factors as fines, court costs, insurance rate increases, car towing and storage, bail, fees for license reinstatement and more.
  • As the only statewide traffic enforcement agency, the Colorado State Patrol investigates approximately 30 percent of traffic crashes in Colorado, including about 70 percent of all traffic crashes involving fatalities.
  • For the past five years in Colorado, the number of fatal DUI caused crashes has remained relatively stable, although the number of DUI injury crashes has decreased significantly. This mirrors the national trend in which the total number of fatal crashes and fatalities are declining, while the number of DUI caused fatal crashes and fatalities has essentially remained unchanged.
