Though we are not alcoholics, at times we might lose our sense and indulge ourselves in a party with friends and court trouble with police on the roads.
Whatever was your level of alcohol and stupor or whether you were over speeding, it all bogs down to only one thing that you have to face an arrest perhaps and have not other option on hand.
Always remember no matter what you are feeling whether angry or sorry, it really doesn’t matter while dealing with the police is concerned. The way you behave with respect and as a gentleman is what matters and they are likely to be courteous with you too.
When the office asks you what went wrong and begins to record your version, it always to stay composed and calm. Your answer should be factual, concise as well as correct and minimum. There is no need to get over dramatic and excited. The officer will like your response in this fashion.
You will be grilled with several questions and for details. Make it a point to remain composed and answer all questions with crisp, factual answers. Do not avoid any question and answer straight to the point. Always maintain a politeness.
If in case you are all alone and there is nobody waiting outside the station for you, it is better for you to call up your friends or family and request one of them to drive down to the station. As soon as you are released on custody or given the option to post bail, you can get them to drive you home.
The officer will explain the process and the papers that you would need to file for the bail. It helps if your family or friends are around to make a note, contact the lawyer and get it organized. If not, you would have to face it all alone which means you have got to listen to what is being explained very carefully and note down the same.
You will be in a emotionally upset state of mind and it is quite likely that you are unable to concentrate and hear whatever is being explained by the officer. This is quite natural as you probably feel intimated. However if you are polite the officer will ensure you calm down and explain the process till you get it right.
