Nice weekend in Palm Springs until arrested for dui at checkpoint?

DUI attorneys in California tried to warn folks about being trapped on a nice weekend in the desert at a checkpoint in Palm Springs.

California drunk driving uthorities impounded 16 vehicles, arrested four drivers on suspicion of California DUI and issued 21 citations for unlicensed or revoked driver's licenses and other violations during a DUI checkpoint in Palm Springs, California.

Friday night's California DUI checkpoint trapped drivers in the 2900 block of North Indian Canyon Drive. A total of 841 vehicles could not escape and were screened for drunk driving investigations.

Of the 16 vehicles impounded, 12 will be stored for at least 30 days.

Money for the California DUI checkpoint was provided through what sometimes appear to be unlimited grants from the State of California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
