DUI Checkpoint in Wilmington, DE on Friday

Comments

Delaware Valley drivers, you should be on the lookout this weekend. There will be a DUI checkpoint in Wilmington on Friday, October 4, 2013 led by the New Castle County DUI Task Force. The exact location of the checkpoint hasn’t been disclosed, but you should expect to see it in an area known for a high rate of DUI incidents.

No exact time has been announced, either. This means you should drive very carefully throughout the day on Friday. Also double check that you have your license, registration and proof of insurance with you. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Here are some tips to avoid a DUI arrest this weekend:

  • Try to stick to non-alcoholic beverages. You should also make sure you’ve have plenty to eat and drink if you do decide to drink alcohol.
  • Know your limits. This is very important if you are driving. If you feel as if you at all are under the influence, don’t get behind the wheel.
  • Have an app or the number of a cab company in your phone. Services like Uber and Lyft are great if you’ve had too much to drink and don’t want to get behind the wheel.

If you do get stopped at the checkpoint, it is important to remain as calm as possible. Don’t be smart with the police officer and don’t show any signs of anger. State your name and hand them your paperwork.

You should also remember that you do not have to answer any questions other than stating your name. You do not have to answer if you’ve been drinking. Politely say that while you appreciate what the officer is doing, your attorney advised you not to answer any questions.

If you do get arrested for a DUI, it is important to remember that a DUI arrest does not equal a DUI conviction. You can fight your DUI charges to get them reduced or dropped altogether. Find a lawyer who can help you at 1800DUILaws.com.

DUI Crackdown in Parts of PA This Weekend

Comments

Caution DUI Checkpoint

Pennsylvania drivers, consider yourself warned!

Even though it’s only Monday, PA police have announced that roving patrols and a DUI checkpoint will take place this weekend.

If you’re going to be driving on York County or Lancaster County, please be careful and don’t drink and drive.

Furthermore, Lancaster County police will be having a DUI checkpoint that will take place during the same time period.

When stopped at a DUI checkpoint, many DUI attorneys will suggest that you don’t answer any questions. Typically, the cops may ask, “Have you been drinking tonight?” or “Where are you coming from?” These are questions that you don’t necessarily have to answer without an attorney present. If you choose to not answer these questions, it is important to be as polite and cooperative as possible so the police don’t misinterpret your refusals as a sign of aggression.

However, if you refuse to take a breathalyzer test, you may have to face a license suspension and you may be required to install an ignition interlock device.

The minimum fines for a DUI in Pennsylvania can usually run you around $300. However, sometimes these fines can be as much as $5,000 depending on your criminal history and specific details regarding your DUI arrest. These expensive fines are just one of the reasons why it is necessary to contact an experienced PA DUI lawyer to fight your charges. A DUI can cost a significant amount of money. If you’re worried about how much a DUI will cost you, speak with a lawyer today to learn about your options.
