In San Diego County a DUI checkpoint is set for Oceanside on Saturday night! It’s always better to not drink alcohol and drive! If you go out partying, please have a designated driver, call a cab or my law firm! We can arrange a ride home for you!
A DUI sobriety checkpoint is scheduled for Saturday, June 27th, from 9:00pm to 3:00am at an undisclosed location in Oceanside. As all DUI checkpoints, their goal is to limit and or reduce the number of drunk drivers on the roadways to prevent injury accidents and even fatalities.
Although the goal of DUI checkpoints is honorable, they must be set up and administered in conformity with the law which requires strict guidelines. A competent criminal defense DUI attorney understands the intricacies in the constitutionality of DUI checkpoints. If the DUI checkpoint is not set up or administered to the constitutional standards, then it’s an unlawful seizure of the driver and occupants and they should have all evidence seized suppressed and not used against them.
