16 San Diego California DUI arrests at 1400 G Street drunk driving checkpoint, lawyers alert

California drunk driving roadblocks spring up HERE on weekends, San Diego DUI attorneys remind.  Last Valentine's Day weekend in downtown San Diego was no exception for DUI checkpoints, California lawyers warned. 16 people were arrested Saturday night / Sunday morning at the San Diego Police’s DUI checkpoint in downtown's East Village.

San Diego California Police Department DUI Officers trapped motorists when they cordoned off two lanes near 1400 G Street from 10:50 p.m. to 3 a.m. to easily examine and pop drivers who had been drinking, say San Diego California DUI lawyers.

1,988 vehicles passed through the San Diego California Police Department DUI checkpoint, and 793 were screened, San Diego California Police Department drunk driving police told local attorneys.

25 were asked to perform San Diego California Police Department DUI  field sobriety tests, and officers claimed sixteen drivers were too drunk to drive. 

3 were on California DUI probation for previous San Diego or California DUI offenses so they were taken to San Diego Jail and charged with Penal Code Section 166 - violation of court order.  They face multiple year license suspensions unless their attorney can help with early reinstatement procedures.

San Diego California Police Department impounded 18 vehicles during the San Diego California Police Department DUI checkpoint operation, which was paid for by the California Office of Traffic Safety’s DUI unlimited money tree.
