About Roadside Checkpoints
Cobb County DUI Lawyer
Law enforcement sets up roadside sobriety checkpoints from time to time, although restrictions imposed by the court system must be followed to the letter. Some of the requirements that law enforcement must adhere to include a public announcement of where the checkpoint will take place. How the drivers are pulled over is often specified, such as every third car. After being stopped at a roadside checkpoint, it is likely that if law enforcement suspects that you are intoxicated, they may ask you to perform several field sobriety tests for more evidence against you. Surprisingly, when police ask the individual “have you been drinking?” many individuals answer “yes”. In fact, you are not actually required to answer questions other than your name, address and such information, as well as providing your driver’s license and registration.
