8. Assuming that just because you were behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated, it must mean that you were Driving While Impaired.

Another mistake that an officer may make is assuming that just because you were behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated, it must mean that you were Driving While Impaired. As of today, it is still not illegal to sit in your car and listen to music after having a couple of beers, you just better not have the engine cranked and there should not be any circumstantial evidence to suggest that the vehicle had been in operation in the recent past, such as a warm hood or the smell of exhaust.
