Traffic Tickets & Criminal Law
If you are stopped for a DUI, DWI or other traffic violation, remember the following suggestions:
  1. DO be polite and produce the requested documents.
  2. DO NOT say that it’s your fault, even if you think it is.
  3. DO NOT volunteer information. You are not required to answer ANY questions regardless of what the officer says.
  4. DO NOT lie to the officer. If you don’t want to answer a question, just don’t.
There’s a fifth step, too:
  1. Contact the Law Office of William G. Cownie LLC PC or call (816) 525-9200
