According to an article in the December 15, 2011 Contra Costa Times, police officers throughout the county are planning various increases in DUI enforcement. This increased enforcement will last until after New Year’s Eve. The campaign will include numerous DUI sobriety checkpoints throughout the county.
The times and locations of two checkpoints have been released. They are both on Friday night, December 16, 2011. One is in Richmond, on San Pablo Avenue at the cross street of McBryde Avenue. The only time given is “nighttime hours”. The other DUI checkpoint will be in Walnut Creek, on Lawrence Way, near Interstate 680. The time of this checkpoint will be from 9:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. The report also talks about other checkpoints planned for San Pablo and West Contra Costa, but no details are provided.
Obviously, it is always best to never drink and drive. If you do decide to have one or two and take the chance, don’t drive anywhere near these locations. If you are arrested at a DUI checkpoint carefully select a DUI lawyer with experience in challenging these intrusions.
