San Diego County DUI Law Center's Attorney Rick Mueller announces these checkpoint locations Super Bowl Weekend.

DUI/Driver's License checkpoint Planned this Weekend

The San Diego County Sheriff's Department, San Marcos Sheriff’s Station in conjunction with the Escondido Police Department, Carlsbad Police Department, California Highway Patrol, Cal-State San Marcos Police Department, Palomar College Police Department and San Diego County Probation Department, "AVOID the 8 on SR-78 ", will be conducting a DUI/Driver's License checkpoint on January 30, 2015 at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 6:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public.

The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized DUI checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are conducted routinely.
