DUI Checkpoints are Legal
Labor Day is right around the corner. Are you aware that many sobriety (DUI) checkpoints are set up around holidays? These checkpoints are legal in the state of Florida. The DUI checkpoints are roadblocks set up by the police to catch drunk or impaired drivers. These checkpoints may be publicized in advance or may just have signs announcing them as you approach them. Do you know what to expect if you are stopped at a sobriety (DUI) checkpoint?
Here is what typically occurs:
•The police officer will ask you for your license, registration, and proof of insurance.
•The police officer might ask you questions to assess your sobriety such as where you are going and where you came from
•The police officer might run your license to see if there are any warrants out for your arrest
•If the officer suspects that you might be impaired, then you might be asked to take a Breathalyzer test
People often ask if it is legal for police to stage DUI checkpoints. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it is legal since the dangers from drunk driving outweigh the “degree of intrusion” that a sobriety checkpoint requires.
