Tampa DUI attorney Ben Stechschulte agrees that Tampa DUI checkpoints are necessary to keep drunk drivers off the road. However, these checkpoints must be legal. The Supreme Court found that DUI checkpoints are Constitutional but local authorities need to prepare a plan beforehand, as a protective measure against profiling citizens based on age, gender, race, ethnicity, and/or religion.
It is important if you are pulled over at one of these checkpoints to contact an experienced Tampa DUI Lawyer like Ben Stechschulte so that he can review the facts of your case and determine if the checkpoint was, in fact, a legal stop.
