West Palm Beach Sobriety Checkpoint Attorney
About Sobriety Checkpoints and DUI Law
In the state of Florida, between 15-20 sobriety checkpoints are carried out each month. A sobriety checkpoint is a type of roadblock established by law enforcement. Many states do not set up sobriety checkpoints because it has been determined to be unconstitutional, but this is not the case in Florida. The purpose of sobriety checkpoints in the eyes of the law is twofold. The first purpose is to get drunk drivers off the road so that others are not harmed, and secondly, to arrest those that have been drinking and driving.
