It looks like Bay Area drivers may not have to endure as many driving under the influence checkpoints as they did over the Christmas weekend. According to a press release, Alameda County
will not have any checkpoints this weekend.
In Solano County
, there will only be one checkpoint. It will be at an undisclosed location in Vallejo
In San Francisco
, there will be a DUI checkpoint on Saturday, New Year’s Eve. It will be set up on Eighth Street at Folsom Street from 8:00 p.m. to 3 a.m.
Keep in mind that there may be other unreported DUI checkpoints throughout the Bay Area. If you unexpectedly drive up to one there is nothing illegal about legally
avoiding the checkpoint. The police need to provide a legal avenue of escape for people who choose not to submit to the DUI checkpoint.
Since there are specific requirements that police must satisfy with a sobriety checkpoint, if you have been arrested for DUI at one call 888-DUI ANSWER immediately to talk to an experienced DUI attorney. Above all, have a happy and safe New Year’s Eve!
