Getting arrested for a La Mesa DUI can be traumatic experience. The arrest. The 8-12 hours in jail. Your car may have been towed. Finally, the uncertainty of what to do now can be daunting. Your court date is two to six weeks away.
I was reading the news about a recent checkpoint in La Mesa. I thought it would be good to give La Mesa folks some insight on what to do once someone is arrested for a La Mesa DUI.
Law Enforcement is utilizing “Saturation Patrols” rather than sobriety checkpoints more often. It helps beef up police presence and ultimately brings in ample revenue due to increased traffic citations given. DUI saturation greatly affect the members of the impacted community both good and bad (and usually without their knowledge). An initial analysis of a good DUI defense is to find out whether the officer was on patrol as part of a DUI saturation detail.
So what exactly is a “DUI Saturation Patrol”?
