Carlsbad DUI Stop Leads to Arrests

A Carlsbad DUI checkpoint is an annual event that was set up to honor two California Highway Patrol officers who were killed by drunk drivers. The two officers were killed in separate instances over a decade ago. One officer was investigating a crash when a drunk driver crashed into him, and the other officer died when a drunk driver slammed into the back of his patrol car while he was issuing a speeding ticket.

The DUI stop is an annual event that is designed to encourage people to avoid getting behind the wheel after they have consumed alcohol. This year's event let to three arrests.

DUI Checkpoints in California

DUI checkpoints are predetermined areas where law enforcement will conduct stops to check drivers for impairment and to deter driving under the influence. The legality of DUI checkpoints can sometimes be fuzzy, so some states do not allow these checkpoints to occur. DUI checkpoints are protected under California law, and over 2,500 checkpoints take place around the state each year.

The best way to avoid DUI arrest is to not get behind the wheel after having anything to drink. Your next option is to call a DUI lawyer as soon as possible.

If you or a loved one have been charged with a DUI as a result of being stopped at a DUI checkpoint, contact the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry, Inc. to discuss the details of your case.
