Getting pulled over is never fun, but getting pulled over because a police officer simply suspected that you driving while intoxicated (DWI) is not only not fun, it may be illegal. Law enforcement officers in the state of New Hampshire are trained to use DWI/DUI Detection procedures that are set forth by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The DWI Detection process involves evidence based phases in determination of whether or not an individual may be arrested for a suspected DWI violation. There are three phases to the DWI detection process:police-300x147

  • Phase One – Vehicle in Motion;
  • Phase Two – Personal Contact; and
  • Phase Three – Pre ‐arrest Screening

The question must be asked: Can an officer in New Hampshire pull me over just because he suspected I was driving while intoxicated?

Lowering BAC Limit to .05 May Not Reduce Alcohol-Related Fatalities

The National Transportation Safety Board has recommended lowering the legal limit on blood alcohol content for drivers. NH DUI attorney John Tenn says the measure may not be an effective way to help save lives.

Lowering BAC to .05 breathalyzer_jpg_300x300_q85MANCHESTER, NH – SAFETY officials have recommended tightening drunk driving standards.  Earlier this month, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) voted to recommend that blood alcohol content (BAC) limits for drivers be more stringent. Currently, all 50 states have adopted a BAC limit of .08%. BAC – whether measured by breathalyzers or blood tests – is a common way to determine whether a driver is impaired.  The NTSB suggests that states tighten that limit to .05% – a level that would preclude many adults from driving after even a single drink. NH DUI attorney John Tenn, whose criminal practice primarily involves DUI defense, says that the proposed measure may not have the intended effect of saving lives.
