Getting pulled over by police is never a pleasant experience. However, the situation can become far more stressful if an officer asks, "Have you been drinking tonight?"
When cops suspect someone of driving under the influence of alcohol, they may take a variety of steps to test the driver’s sobriety. This is an effort to collect evidence in the event that drunk driving charges are filed, making it a very critical situation. Administering a breath test is something officers often do in these scenarios, and the results of which test are likely to play a role in how officers proceed.
