Huntington Beach Police Arrest Six During Weekend DUI Checkpoint

This past Friday April, 11th, officers from the Huntington Beach Police Department conducted a sobriety and driver's license checkpoint on Pacific Coast Highway and Huntington St. The checkpoint took place between the hours of 7:50 pm to 2:30 am – the time during which alcohol-related auto accidents are statistically highest. According to reports released from the department, more than 2,000 vehicles passed through the checkpoint. Five people were arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence and one driver was arrested on criminal charges.

Officials from the Huntington Beach Police Department routinely conduct sobriety checkpoints to ensure that motorists are not operating their vehicles under the influence of drugs or alcohol – as well as to ensure that drivers are properly licensed. Such checkpoints are commonly held throughout the year – especially during holidays. The department has also announced plans to conduct another checkpoint on May 23, 2014.

Arrested at a DUI Checkpoint?

DUI checkpoints have become a popular tactic used by law enforcement agencies throughout the country, as they help keep drunk drivers off the road and send a clear message to communities about the dangers of impaired driving. However, many have raised privacy concerns about these checkpoints, and the overzealousness of some officers who conduct them.

In Southern California and Orange County, DUI checkpoints happen frequently and are typically conducted during times associated with alcohol-related incidents, such as the weekends and holidays. They are also placed strategically at locations to boost public safety in areas where impaired driving is most common. Over the past year, for example, there have been 33 injuries and one death resulting from alcohol-related accidents on the PCH.

If you or a loved one has been arrested at a DUI checkpoint or any other location throughout the region, an Orange County DUI lawyer from the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry can help. To learn more about your case and defense, call 877-384-7833.
