DUI checkpoints are commonly used by the police enforcement agencies. They allow cops to encounter hundred, or even thousands, of potential law violators in one given location. The officers are allowed to talk to people without the otherwise required reasonable suspicion needed to talk to most individuals.
However, the cops are not allowed to make a checkpoint whenever or however they want. There are specific regulations which must be followed. For example, the checkpoint must be published at least 48 hours before it is to occur. They must establish a pattern for pulling people over. They are not allowed to stop every car. They must establish a random pattern for the stop. There was a monumental case which laid the foundation for the way checkpoints are held, Ingersoll v. Palmer.
Many times, drivers under the influence are not the only people arrested at a checkpoint. The officers encounter people with suspended licenses, warrants, or who have other reasons for arrest. And not every person encountered by the cops, or who is made to go under a field test is arrested. Click here to read sample results from a recent DUI checkpoint in Riverside County.
