I have established many ties with Escondido over the years. I have relationships with several businesses. I absolutely love Vinz wine bar and sunny side kitchen. I have gotten to know the area. I have gotten to know quite a bit about how Escondido Police work.
The city of Escondido is one of the more interesting towns in San Diego to receive a DUI because the facts of each case may be totally different from the other.
Escondido has SR-78 and I-15 in its borders. Both of these freeways has a very intensive police presence. A person can come in contact with Escondido Police just as easy as the California Highway Patrol (CHP). Someone can also come into contact with Sheriff Deputies. All these agencies are sniffing for DUIs. More Escondido residents will be suspected of DUI even when they not be.
In these “saturation areas” it is key that you are aware of your rights. First, be suspect of traffic stops in the late evening because this is the probable cause (PC) the officer pulls you over. It is often very minimal and if you are not DUI you need to fight the citation.
Second, if you are stopped by police. Be respectful, but know if the officer suspects DUI than he will likely arrest. Here is some likely observations they would use to form their opinion:
– Any kind of bad driving
– Red, watery eyes
– Slow movements (funny…who wants to make fast movements with police)
– Odor of alcohol
– Slurred speech
The best route is to be respectful but STAY quiet.
Tell the officer you do not want to make any statements. Tell the officer you do not want to take any tests. Tell the officer you do not want to take a breath or blood tests UNLESS YOU HAVE TO.
The officer may still arrest you, but your case will be in a much better situation.
