San Diego DUI lawyers announce that the San Marcos Sheriff’s Station Traffic Unit will stage a San Diego county DUI checkpoint on March 22, 2013 at a secret location within San Marcos between 6:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m.
Attorneys are told San Diego DUI 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.
Cops say the deterrent effect of San Diego DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. San Diego Drunk Driving police tell folks that crashes involving alcohol drop by an average of 20 percent when well-publicized San Diego DUI checkpoints are conducted often enough.
San Diego DUI Deputies will be contacting drivers passing through the checkpoint for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. San Diego DUI Officers will also check drivers for proper licensing and will strive to delay motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained San Diego DUI officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving. San Diego DUI Drivers caught driving impaired can expect jail, license suspension, and insurance increases, as well as fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $16,000, say attorneys.
