Six Arrests Made From San Diego East Village DUI Checkpoint

We are all in the thick of the holiday season. There will be more San Diego DUI checkpoints around several locations in the county.  The San Diego police are very active in the area for DUI and will conduct DUI checkpoints or San Diego saturation patrols often. Be safe and remember to know your rights before heading in.

San Diego Police to Launch Teen DUI Awareness Program

I actually like the program. So often people feel they are less impaired than they really are. People do not realize they are impaired until they are driving. Some pull over (sometimes too late). Other times people feel they are on the way home and can soldier through. The program will provide context for the young people on how sublte the clues the police see to make the arrest.  When I was a prosecutor and went to my first checkpoints I was expecting falling down drunks.  I was watching someone who I thought was doing well get arrested. The police note little actions that they conclude is due to impairment.  Forget it could be bad balance, sleepiness, being scared to death, etc.  DUI checkpoints are a main subject of conversation in in DUI defense.  It is good to see the police trying to be proative with teensdui-oc-sheriff-checkpoint.jpg.
