California DUI checkpoints are designed to protect the public from motorist who are
driving under the influence.
When conducting these checkpoints, police officers look for signs of intoxication such as slurred speech, bloodshot or water eyes or even alcohol odor.
If officers notice any of these signs, they may require the driver to conduct
DUI field sobriety tests.
Because these sobriety test must be done according to specific guidelines, there is room for error; if you have been arrested during a checkpoint or after failing a field sobriety test, contact an experienced
California DUI Defense Attorney immediately.
The list below includes several cities that will be conducting DUI checkpoints; however, there may be additional locations that are not listed. If you will be drinking this weekend, assign a designated driver so that you do not put yourself and others at risk.
