LDW DUI Checkpoints

This Labor Day Weekend, do not be surprised if you hear about an increase in DUI checkpoints, or even drive into one yourself. Unless your blood alcohol content (BAC) level is over the legal limit in California, which is 0.08% by the way, or you do not seem coherent, you should have nothing to worry about. To prep you, and ensure your holiday weekend safety, here is what you need to know about checkpoints.

  • Checkpoint locations and times may or may not be posted publicly beforehand.
  • If you are driving and come across one, the officer will motion you to drive to the side of the road, and stop momentarily.
  • Roll down your window so that you may hear the officer. They will ask where you are heading, where you are coming from, and if you have been drinking and possibly other questions as well.
