What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

DUI checkpoints may pop up on Cinco de Mayo

Posted on May 2nd, 2012 No Comments

Cinco de Mayo is this Saturday, May 11, and police departments in 11 different states are planning on setting up DUI checkpoints in order to catch drunk drivers.

DUI checkpoints are only legal if they meet certain criteria. This criteria includes; the checkpoint being up for a limited amount of time, advanced notice of the actual checkpoint, and no bias is allowed to take place when determining which car will be stopped at the checkpoint.

In the states where checkpoints are not considered legal, different precautions will be taken by police. Extra patrol officers will be deployed on Saturday to watch the streets for drunk drivers. Mobile DUI units will also be used over the weekend to try to prevent fatal drunk driving accidents.

If you have been injured in an accident due to a drunk driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Please contact the Jacksonville car accident lawyers of the Law Offices of Donald Guthrie by calling 904-296-1088 today.
