Being Stopped by the Police

The Police have the right to stop any vehicle they want. So, if you are driving along, and in the mirror you see the dreaded blue lights flashing away, then you must stop. A failure to do so, may result in a charge. However, just because they have the right to stop you, does not necessarily mean that you have to give a breathalyser test if they ask you for one.
