Challenging DWI Checkpoints
Police must abide by the law when conducting DWI checkpoints. If police failed to follow these rules when conducting the checkpoint that lead to your arrest, it may be sufficient cause to get your charged dismissed.
- Checkpoint stops must be executed according to a predetermined random formula
- Police must detain drivers for the minimum possible amount of time
- Checkpoint decisions must be made by supervisors who are qualified to do so
- Police must provide advance notice of the checkpoint
