THE MANHATTAN DRUNK DRIVING STOP

The NYPD conducts traffic stops in Manhattan. The usual way that a DWI arrest is made is that a police officer will stop a vehicle for an alleged traffic infraction. He will then conduct a cursory investigation and if he believes that the person has had anything to drink he will charge him with drunk driving. Sometimes, the NYPD conducts DWI checkpoints that are designed to trap as many people as possible.

The average NYPD officer has received very little training in spotting and arresting drunk drivers. All they need to make an arrest is to have the accused admit that they have had any alcohol to drink. It is also at this time where the officer may seize your car for forfeiture which asks to the costs of your case.
