Imagine you’re driving and, behind you, a police officer turns on blue lights. You hear sirens and pull over.

You lower your window as the officer approaches.

If the officer suspects you’ve been drinking, do you have the right to refuse to take a field sobriety test or blow into a blood-alcohol reader? If the officer wants to search your car, can you say no?

You shouldn’t have to guess about your rights during an encounter with law enforcement, says 36-year-old tech entrepreneur and Davidson College graduate Mbey Njie. In both scenarios, DUI and police search laws vary by state.

Njie created a smartphone app called “Legal Equalizer.” It helps you understand your rights and also alerts selected contacts in your phone that you’ve been stopped by a police officer. A built-in video feature uses your phone’s camera to record the interaction and the video is automatically saved.
