Drunk Driving - DUI - DWI
Field Sobriety Checkpoints

Have you been charged with drunk driving recently?
Received a Driving Under the Influence driving charge?
Cited for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)?
Want to learn more about your options if charged with DUI?

Periodically police establish sobriety checkpoints as a sensible method of keeping our roads safe. Here are some things you should know about sobriety checkpoints including:

• Field sobriety checkpoints are typically placed where a high level of street traffic occurs. While most checkpoints occur during the evening hours, some law enforcement agencies are now conducting checkpoints during the day.

• Field sobriety checkpoints usually funnel all lanes into a single lane through the use of orange cones, flares and sometimes electronic signs.

• Law enforcement officers at sobriety checkpoints may stop every vehicle or a predetermined numerical sequence of vehicles. This is usually done to enure that randomness take place.

• If you are a driver suspected of drinking and driving (DUI) you may be asked to perform a standardize field sobriety test. These may include hand and eye coordination tests or being able to walk a straight line to determine if you're too intoxicated to operate a motor vehicle.

• If you do not perform the field sobriety test to the officers' satisfaction or -- even worst -- if you refuse to take a field sobriety test, you will be arrested and taken to jail. If you were driving alone, your car/truck will also be impounded and towed away.
