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.

Caution DUI Checkpoint

Although there were plenty of DUI checkpoints in California last weekend, don’t think the police aren’t going to be patrolling this weekend.

Police in Chula Vista will be holding a checkpoint within city limits this Saturday. It will begin at 6pm and last until 3am. The exact location of the checkpoint was undisclosed.

If you get stopped at the checkpoint, remember that the most important thing you can do is be respectful to the police. Do not answer any questions other than stating your name. Submit to a breathalyzer test, but inform the officer that your lawyer told you not to submit to a field sobriety test.
