ORANGE COUNTY DUI SOBRIETY CHECKPOINTS

DUI checkpoints are a commonly used method used by law enforcement to stop and detain drunk drivers in Orange County and throughout the entire country. Law enforcement agencies in Orange County and Southern California often receive grant money to conduct DUI Checkpoints and/or Roadblock or Roving DUI Patrols or DUI Saturation Patrols. While DUI Checkpoints rarely capture large volumes of drunk drivers, the government defends them by claiming that they were designed to deter drunk driving. "Roving DUI Patrols" oftentimes prove more successful in locating DUI drivers because they cover a larger geographical area.

DUI SOBRIETY CHECKPOINT PROCEDURES

DUI Sobriety checkpoints are used by law enforcement to locate drunk drivers. In a DUI Sobriety Checkpoint, or Roadblock, law enforcement officials stop every vehicle, (or every nth vehicle), on a public roadway to investigate the possibility that the driver might driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, or violating some other law.

To learn more about the law and the evolution of DUI Checkpoints and/or Roadblocks, follow this nine part series on DUI Checkpoints and/or Roadblocks in the State of California:


LOCATIONS OF DUI CHECKPOINTS

Sobriety checkpoints are often set up on holidays or holiday weekends, late at night or in the very early morning hours, a time where statistically the proportion of impaired drivers tends to be the highest. Sometimes, sobriety checkpoints are set close to the exit points of public events. This would seem illegal, but it is not. Indication that a DUI Sobriety Checkpoint is ahead requires the posting of signs advising drivers that a DUI Sobriety checkpoint is being conducted ahead. DUI Sobriety Checkpoints must afford drivers a means to escape the DUI Sobriety Checkpoint, but there are usually motor officers on scene looking for drivers trying to escape the DUI Sobriety Checkpoint. The motor officers can stop only those vehicles that commit an actual violation of law in avoiding the checkpoint—they cannot pull the driver off just because it appears that the driver is attempting to avoid the DUI Sobriety Checkpoint.

During a sobriety checkpoint, law enforcement officials typically set up cones and roadblocks to narrow the roadway so vehicles will pass through only a couple lanes from which one cannot get out prior to reaching the “greeter”. If selected by way of the neutral mathematical formula, (i.e., every vehicle or every nth vehicle), and you display “objective signs of intoxication” such as the odor of alcohol, bloodshot/watery eyes or slurred speech, you will then likely be escorted to the “screening” section of the DUI Sobriety Checkpoint where the Field Sobriety Testing will be administered. Thereafter, if arrested, you will be required to submit to a breath test or a blood test as required by the Implied Consent Statutes (Vehicle Code Section 23612).


DUI SOBRIETY CHECKPOINTS MUST BE CONSTITUTIONALLY PERMISSIBLE TO BE LEGAL

As far as DUI Checkpoints go, law enforcement agencies must establish that the DUI Checkpoint was set-up in such a way as to make it Constitutionally permissible. A DUI Checkpoint that is not Constitutionally permissible could lead to the entire stop, detention and arrest being suppressed and result in a dismissal of the DUI charges. Any agency that sets up a DUI Sobriety Checkpoint must prepare a "DUI Checkpoint Packet" pursuant to the case of Ingersoll v. Palmer. This "DUI Checkpoint Packet" is often referred to as an "Ingersoll Packet" based on the case.

To learn more about the law and the evolution of DUI Checkpoints and/or Roadblocks, follow this eight part series on DUI Checkpoints and/or Roadblocks in the State of California:


ORANGE COUNTY DUI CHECKPOINT DISCOVERY

As discussed above, any law enforcement agency who conducts a "DUI Checkpoint" or a "DUI Sobriety Checkpoint" must prepare a "DUI Checkpoint Packet" or "Ingersoll Packet" to establish that the Checkpoint complied with all the requirements set forth by the Ingersoll v. Palmer decision.

In addition to the "DUI Checkpoint Packet" or "Ingersoll Packet", the agency may have also taken video of the DUI Sobriety Checkpoint. Sometimes the video is only of the DUI Checkpoint layout and other times there is video of the entire DUI Sobriety Checkpoint, meaning, video of all of the vehicles passing through the DUI Sobriety Checkpoint. While the latter type of video recording is uncommon, they may be present in certain cases.

Nevertheless, in addition to the aforementioned information, you can learn about the type of DUI Discovery each of the Orange County Law Enforcement Agencies use by clicking the appropriate link below for the Orange County City in which you were arrest for Driving Under the Influence (DUI):
