California lawyers specializing in San Diego DUI cases like folks to know there are risky drunk driving checkpoints set up throughout the state. No DUI attorney in California wants to see you get stopped at a DUI roadblock after you drove safely up to that point!
Here's a Los Angeles County dui checkpoint tonight! Long Beach Police Department will conduct a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and Driver’s License Checkpoint on Saturday May 2, 2009, from 6:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. at Artesia Boulevard, east of Cherry Avenue. Traffic volume and weather permitting, all vehicles may be checked and drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested. Our objective is to send a clear message to those who are considering driving a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol and/or drugs – Drunk Driving, Over the Limit, Under Arrest.
Nationally, drivers impaired by alcohol and/or drugs cause one death every 33 minutes. Sobriety checkpoints have been proven to reduce impaired driving related accidents by removing these drivers from the streets, as well as ensure that drivers have a valid driver’s license. Checkpoints also increase public awareness and deter impaired driving by encouraging the use of sober designated drivers. As always, the public is encouraged to help keep roadways safe by calling 9-1-1 anytime they see a suspected impaired driver. Funding for this operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
