What Do New York Police Officers Look For After Pulling Someone Over For Drunk Driving?

Police officers are using all their senses including their sense of smell to start to draw a conclusion as to whether you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

They try to get a smell of your breath or at least a smell from inside your vehicle to determine if they can detect the odor of alcohol or burnt marijuana. They want to see your eyes to observe whether they are bloodshot and watery. The officer will observe how quick and responsive you are to their request to provide answers to their questions and to provide your drivers license, insurance card and registration.

The officer will take a look inside your vehicle from outside to try to see any contraband such as an open bottle of alcohol or a burnt marijuana cigarette.

There are many other factors that may trigger a police officer to conclude that you are intoxicated such as slurred speech or erratic driving.
