Highlight

A law enforcement officer’s approach of a parked vehicle is not a seizure if the officer inquires of the occupant in a conversational manner, does not order the person do something, and does not demand a response.

An officer’s encounter with a person may lead to a seizure if the officer learns something during the encounter that leads to a reasonable suspicion of criminal activity and that reasonably justifies further investigation, a seizure, or an arrest.

The results of a chemical test are not admissible in a criminal proceeding if an officer does not substantively comply with the applicable statutory requirements of the implied consent advisory.
