    1. Murphy, Stefanie: WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE STOPPED If you have been pulled over by the police, there are several ways in which you can help yourself. Remain calm. Police officers can interpret nervousness in your voice as a sign that you are hiding something or are intoxicated. Whether you have consumed alcohol or not, remaining calm is a good way to ensure that police officers will not question your sobriety. Always have a clean center console or glove box. Fumbling through these compartments to find your registration or insurance can be easily misinterpreted for intoxication. By keeping a glove box or center console neat and clean, it allows you to swiftly grab your identification and present it to a police officer. Do not consent to a search of the car. Any evidence found in your car could be used to support a DUI conviction, so do not allow the officer to perform a search. Do take the test. Many DUI defendants have been found guilty due to a malfunctioning breath analyzing machine or an improperly administered blood or urine test, but you should take the test unless you were in an accident involving injuries. Contact a DUI attorney immediately.
