Caught Driving While Under The Influence In Amherst MA?

Being caught driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious offense. A DUI arrest is based on probable cause to believe that you were operating your vehicle while impaired by the substances you have ingested. Police officers base DUI arrests on observations of erratic driving patterns they observe when following behind motorists. Once they determine that someone has committed traffic violations they may stop them for further investigation. If a police officer observes certain signs of impairment they can make an official DUI arrest on the roadside, through probable cause DUI testing, or at the station.
