These types of checkpoints are becoming more and more prevalent across the US. They have been proven to be an effective way of limiting the number of drug-related car crashes and injuries. According to national statistics, impaired drivers killed almost 10,000 people last year.
If stopped, expect to have your driver’s license checked. You may be asked to conduct a sobriety test if they suspect you of driving under the influence.
DUI checkpoints continue to be a valuable process being conducted by more and more departments across the country. They are cost effective, a strong deterrent for drunk drivers, and help keep people safe.
