Sobriety Checkpoints in New York Can Be Fought
The police employ sobriety checkpoints to screen and arrest drivers that they determine are driving under the influence of alcohol and or drugs.
You may believe that if you have been charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI/DUI) based upon a sobriety checkpoint stop that you would have no defense.
That could not be further from the truth.
The law sets forth a very specific set of guidelines and rules that the police have to follow when employing a checkpoint. If these rules and procedures are not followed then you may be able to get your charges dismissed.
