DWI Checkpoints – Protecting your Rights in Raleigh, Cary, or Apex

Charlotte police officers arrested dozens over the weekend on charges of Driving While Impaired (DWI), also known as driving under the influence (DUI), or simply drunk driving.

If you’ve stopped at a drunk driving checkpoint in Wake County, or surrounding communities in the Research Triangle, and need an aggressive Raleigh DWI lawyer, contact me at (919) 352-9411 weekdays, evenings, or weekends for free advice.

Checkpoints require a lawyer who will investigate the legality of the checkpoint. The Supreme Court has laid down specific guidelines that police are required to follow when they set up a checkpoint to stop cars. If they have not followed those guidelines, you may escape a conviction, even if you were drunk at the time they stopped you.

In addition, there are a lot of ways to challenge the actual DWI tests they gave you at the time you were stopped. You need a lawyer who is going to fully defend you in the matter.
