 Knowing San Diego California DUI locations is a must.  It's the difference between getting home safe and shelling out $10,000.00 +, attorneys remind.

An illegal California DUI operation took place in North San Diego County near Del Mar racetrack, unlawfully changing the standard from .08% to "Zero Tolerance" even for those over 21!

San Diego area DUI police officers resulted in 22 DUI arrests at 5 separate San Diego DUI checkpoints and operations across San Diego County over the weekend, lawyers report.
The most successful of the weekend’s DUI checkpoints operated in the East Village area of San Diego in the 1400 block of G Street from 11 p.m. Saturday to 3 a.m. Sunday, as officers arrested 11 drivers on suspicion of drunken driving and impounded 11 vehicles.
Deputies in Solana Beach operated the sheriff’s department’s third weekend checkpoint from about 8:30 p.m. Saturday to about 2 a.m. Sunday at the 500 block of North Highway 101. Two drivers were arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and 16 drivers were cited, including two for possession of marijuana.
Deputies began the weekend crackdown with a drunk driving operation in and around the Del Mar racetrack from 5 p.m. Friday until 2 a.m. Saturday. Three drivers were arrested on suspicion of drunken driving while 12 more were issued citations.
A sheriff’s checkpoint in Santee on the 9200 block of Carlton Hills Boulevard operated from 8 p.m. Friday to 2:30 a.m. Saturday. Four drivers were arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, one other arrest was made and 10 drivers were cited.
