In California, it is not uncommon to see DUI checkpoints set up on high traffic streets during the weekends.These are designed to keep drunk or impaired drivers off the road in order to keep the streets safe. However, checkpoints must be conducted under specific rules and regulations in order to be considered lawful. Years ago, the California Supreme Court established the laws and regulations regarding DUI checkpoints.

These regulations pertain to the following factors of checkpoint process:

  • Examining the level of intrusiveness involved during the stop
  • Establishing when and how the checkpoint operated
  • Determining responsibility for the decisions made during the checkpoint

Officers must follow a specific process and adhere to the following steps in order for the checkpoint to be considered lawful:

  • Warning lights must be apparent and visible
  • Decisions must be made at the supervisory level
  • The safety of officers and the public must be considered first and foremost
  • The checkpoint’s location must be determined by officials
  • Officers are not permitted to detain drivers longer than necessary
  • A neutral predetermined strategy must be used to determine which cars are stopped at the checkpoint
  • The checkpoint must be publicly posted beforehand
  • The timespan of the checkpoint must be limited to a point in which it is effective and non-intrusive
