More and more DUI stops and arrests are the result of another person initiating an anonymous tip phone call to the police. Courts have relaxed the legal requirements necessary to initiate such a stop. It is best to monitor your behavior at all times, even before getting into the vehicle. Often drivers are stopped and arrested for DUI because of belligerent behavior prior to driving, often times, in the parking lot.
An anonymous tip to police regarding a potential drunk driver does not have to come from another motorist. Frequently, a pedestrian, bartender, customer, or convenience store clerk will make the call to police reporting intoxicated behavior.
