About Sobriety Checkpoints

With an Experienced Pasadena DUI Lawyer

The state legislature has decided that law enforcement can have roadside sobriety checkpoints in the state, with certain restrictions that must be complied with. As the Constitution protects us from unreasonable search and seizure and that law enforcement must have probable cause to pull you over, these checkpoints must be managed under specific restrictions from the outset. These roadside police checkpoints are considered to be useful for identifying DUI drivers and protecting the general public from harm. It is vital that you contact a Pasadena DUI lawyer from The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller right away if you have been arrested and charged with DUI after being pulled over at a sobriety checkpoint.

Arrested & Charged with DUI at a Sobriety Checkpoint?

Police get very invested in their job and in some cases, overstep the bounds of allowed procedures in their zealous effort to find and arrest drunk drivers. In such a case, you may have the opportunity to get your charges dismissed, as our Fourth Amendment rights are protected under law. We have had extensive experience in defending clients in all types of DUI cases, including those in which an individual was charged after being pulled over at a sobriety checkpoint.

Many people don’t realize that they are not required to answer questions such as “have you been drinking?” or other such inquiries but are only required to give law enforcement their documentation and it is always advised that you treat the police with respect. If you are asked to perform field sobriety tests at the scene, we advise you to decline and contact our firm. These tests are very unscientific and have a high percentage of error and should you fail, this can allow for probable cause to accuse you of DUI. The first and most critical action you can take is to contact our firm at once, under these circumstances. We will fight to get your charges dismissed, reduced, or seek an acquittal. We know what we are doing and have an impressive record in court.

We have successfully helped clients with a vast range of DUI issues, including but not limited to:
