A San Diego DUI checkpoint is scheduled for 9 p.m. Saturday to 3 a.m. Sunday at an undisclosed location, according to Oceanside police.
The San Diego California DUI checkpoint aims to reduce drunken driving on local streets, but must be run in conformity with important California Supreme Court guidelines or else any drunk driving arrest is unconstitutional; a good lawyer will ensure protection.
The public is encouraged to call 911 to report impaired drivers according to the DUI police but that doesn’t mean the police have an unchecked right to arrest every drunk driving suspect based on any tip. Merely smelling alcohol on someone leaving a San Diego bar does not equate with a person driving erratically as it is lawful to drink and drive. San Diego DUI arrestees with questions should contact a skilled criminal defense attorney.
