What is the % return on arresting only 2 for DUI out of 1,200 vehicles at this San Diego county DUI checkpoint, lawyers ask?

Escondido is one of many San Diego County cities that throws bricks of cash at staging DUI checkpoints, attorneys say.   Like a number of San Diego towns, their drunk driving roadblocks consume lots of police power while netting very little in DUI arrests.

Friday night's San Diego DUI Checkpoint in Escondido is no different.  Over 1,200 vehicles were trapped going through Valley Pkwy and Juniper St. Drunk Driving roadblock but only "2" DUI arrests were made for October 24 - 25 2014.

How can the city budget justify this?!  They can't so they rely on California grants hustled by the state Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Do NOT speed through a San Diego DUI Checkpoint in Pacific Beach as you will likely crash into vehicles

The San Diego County DUI Law Center records locations of actual DUI roadblocks and drunk driving checkpoints.  So there are ways to avoid San Diego DUI Checkpoints if you follow this free app here.

One way NOT to avoid a DUI Checkpoint in San Diego is to travel at a high speed and plow through the checkpoint hitting other cars without stopping, suggests San Diego DUI lawyer Rick Mueller.

That's what 1 of 11 arrested for San Diego DUI did last night, knocking 3 vehicles including a San Diego Police Department DUI patrol vehicle in Pacific Beach, on Garnet just west of the 5 between 11 pm and 3 a.m. Saturday a.m.

No one was hurt, San Diego DUI attorneys rejoice.

San Diego Padre gets "special treatment" in DUI - Marijuana Arrest, attorneys report

TMZ confirms people in the know get special California DUI arrest treatment, at least in San Diego and if you're a Padre, lawyers suggest.  Every person arrested in San Diego *except Coronado, Chula Vista and Carlsbad, goes to San Diego County Jail when it's a DUI, attorneys know.  But.....

San Diego Padres Shortstop Everth Cabrera got arrested in San Diego last night/early Wednesday morning because San Diego DUI cops said the San Diego Padres shortstop was driving while high on weed.
Rotoworld says it's another black mark on Cabrera's career, already marred by domestic violence charges in 2012 (later dropped) and a Biogenesis-related 50-game suspension last year. He's been terrible on the field this year, too, so it seems pretty unlikely that he'll be back with the Padres in 2015. Right now, he's on the DL with a strained hamstring and iffy to return this season.
U.S. border patrol agents initially made contact with the 27-year-old near a checkpoint on the 94 Freeway around 12:30 AM. Then the California Highway Patrol DUI cop hounds were called in to sniff it out.

After CHP arrived to the scene, deputies were convinced Cabrera was under the influence of marijuana and arrested him for DUI. 

But here's the special treatment - no escort to jail.  Instead, Cabrera was hauled to a nearby station where officials drew blood. He was eventually cited and released to his mother-in-law.
