Facebook,Twitter Changing DUI / Drunk Driving Checkpoints
As a result of DUI checkpoints being posted in advance on Facebook and Twitter, police agencies are starting to rethink their use of DUI checkpoints to catch suspected drunk drivers. Instead of focusing on weekend nights, police are starting to set up checkpoints during the week and at unusual locations. For example, a police agency in Northern California wine country set up a DUI checkpoint at the bottom of a winery’s driveway on barrel-tasting day! This change in policy will have serious negative consequences on business that have specific types of promotions that involve alcohol. Police will also no longer need the large number of officers needed for busy roadway DUI checkpoints nor will it take them as long to set up the checkpoints. If arrested for DUI, call 888-4-TOPGUN (888-486-7486) for representation. Drive safely.
