San Diego DUI Checkpoints increase every holiday, pressuring drivers to either not drink & drive or to use this free California DUI attorney's interactive map to avoid being trapped in a drunk driving roadblock. This Memorial Day Weekend San Diego DUI Checkpoints were exposed in this California DUI Lawyer Center's news story. Here's the police perspective:
San Diego County Sheriff's Department spearheads The AVOID the 16 DUI Task Force featuring Drunk Driving Roadblocks and California DUI Saturation Patrols on Saturday, May 23, 2014 through Sunday morning, May 2014, in the California towns of Del Mar, Encinitas, San Diego, and Solana Beach. As part of the AVOID DUI Task Force, Deputy Sheriff's and Officers from Coronado Police Department, Chula Vista Police Department, County Probation, Escondido Police Department, La Mesa Police Department, San Diego Sheriff's Department, and UCSD Police Department made 91 traffic stops some of them presumably in a major fishing expedition.
These California DUI stormtroopers evaluated a mere 15 drivers for driving under the influence of Alcohol and/or Drugs. Just 2 drivers were arrested for California DUI-Alcohol so that's alot of manpower for limited rights to pound chests. 2 drivers were cited for possession of marijuana.
Although DUI enforcement was supposed to be the top objective, there were 3 drivers cited for driving in California with a suspended driver's license, 19 citations issued for various traffic violations and 2 vehicles towed. The focus of this California DUI operation was to identify and arrest drivers who were operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and/or under the influence of drugs.
These California DUI saturation patrols were fueled by coffee & donuts, funded by unlimited, blind grants through the California Office of Traffic Safety. The California Office of Traffic Safety and local law enforcement urge drivers to "Report Drunk Drivers. Call 911." California attorneys urge drivers to avoid DUI checkpoints and challenge drunk driving arrests in San Diego County.
