What does Miranda Rights mean?

Drivers who have been arrested for either DUI (driving under the influence) or in a car accident must have their Miranda Rights given to them. Miranda rights include: the right to remain silent, the right to an attorney and the right to an appointed attorney if they are unable to afford counsel. Miranda Rights are only read if the driver is under arrest. Questions which are made to the police prior to their arrest are considered voluntary in nature and may be admissible in court. Drivers who are arrested on any criminal charge should refuse to answer questions until they have consulted with a DUI or car accident lawyer.
