A friend was pulled over for a DUI, and in an effort to be helpful and friendly to the office, she answered anything he asked. Is that the right strategy?
No. You need to give your name, license, registration, etc. You don't have to say anything else to the officer and anything you can say can be used against you. Whenever it is clear that an officer is investigation you for a crime, you should request to speak to an attorney as soon as possible.
