Information on DWI checkpoints in St. Louis

The important thing to understand about sobriety checkpoints is that typically the driver has not done anything wrong or broken any traffic laws to warrant being detained. Despite the fact that you haven’t done anything wrong, a police officer will likely approach your car and begin speaking with you. The officer will typically ask questions concerning how much alcohol you have been drinking, where you are coming from and you are going. Throughout this conversation the officer is really observing your behavior while noting any signs of intoxication. You are being investigated for driving while intoxicated even though you technically didn’t do anything besides happening to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. The nature of this investigation brings up numerous legal issues.

If you were arrested for drinking under the influence of alcohol or drugs during a sobriety checkpoint, please know that conviction is still not necessary. You can hire a knowledgeable DWI attorney to examine the circumstances of the checkpoint, the evidence gathered and the charges made in order to protect your rights and avoid a conviction.
