My car was stopped for a minor issue and I got a DUI.
I hear this often, I was stopped for a minor issue, and in addition to the lane change violation, I was also charged with DUI.
More often than not, DUI tickets are issued to people who were not displaying erratic driving behavior, but rather to someone who committed a minor driving infraction.
The auto stop leads to a DUI arrest.
With this in mind, make sure your car is in good driving condition, without the obvious defects that traffic patrol officers look for.
Make weekly inspections of your headlights, taillights, and turn signals. Also be sure that your two license plate lights are working properly.
Performing these weekly inspections and acting on any defect noted, may save you from a DUI ticket and the legal expense to fight it.
