2010: The Year of the Drunk Driving Checkpoint?

February 13th, 2010

Watch out all would be drivers after consuming alcohol and driving in California.  The California Office of Traffic Safety has recently announced that 2010 will be the Year of the DUI Checkpoint in California.  California already conducts more DUI check points that any other state in the country, and 2010 will see an increase in those checkpoints.

$8,000,000.00 has been allocated by the California Office of Traffic Safety, and it is estimated that this money will fund approximately 2500 DUI checkpoints in 2010, a significant increase over 2009’s approximately 1700 sobriety checkpoints.

A driving under the influence arrest can bring serious consequences in California, including: license suspension, a mandatory jail sentence, probation, stiff fines, court fees, long term alcohol classes, increased insurance premiums, and a criminal record.  The above are all potential standard consequences of a first driving under the influence conviction.  Attorney Bernard P. Bray has extensive experience and an excellent track record of successful results defending drunk driving cases.

If you or a loved one has been arrested for drunk driving contact San Jose DUI Attorney Bernard P. Bray immediately: (408) 292-9700. One must move quickly in securing assistance. An accused only has 10 days in which to request a hearing with the DMV to avoid what otherwise will be an automatic license suspension for an arrestee who produced a .08% or higher blood alcohol test result, or who refused a blood alcohol test.
