DWI Checkpoints in North Carolina already netting Drunk Drivers

Booze It and Loose It checkpoints are already netting DWI arrestees. This out of Guilford County where 18 were arrested earlier this month on charges of driving while impaired.

Police can establish checkpoints. The Supreme Court has okay-ed the practice. But police must abide by the constitution, which means that the checkpoint must be consistent with a plan or scheme by the police department, and any stop must be no longer than is necessary to make sure that the driver is not driving while impaired (DWI).

So if you’re stopped at a checkpoint in Cary, Apex, Raleigh or anywhere in Wake County and arrested for a DWI, feel free to call me at (919) 352-9411 anytime, including over the holidays.
