$10,000 San Diego California DUI Nightmare arrives in San Marcos Friday August 1, warn lawyers

San Diego County DUI Law Center knows how important it is that the public is aware of the exact locations of county DUI Checkpoints and Drunk Driving Roadblocks, says San Diego DUI Attorney Rick Mueller.

Friday Night is a popular night for California DUI roadblocks.  In North San Diego County inland, San Marcos will set up an August 1st DUI Checkpoint, lawyers say.

San Marcos Sheriff’s Station Traffic Unit just announced it will be conducting a San Diego California DUI checkpoint on August 1, 2014 at a secret location within the city limits between 6:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.

According the Sheriff's Department, San Diego California DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public.

The public is informed the deterrent effect of San Diego California DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized San Diego California DUI  checkpoints and proactive San Diego California DUI patrols are conducted routinely.

In California, this deadly crime led to 774 deaths because someone failed to designate a sober driver. Nationally, the latest data shows nearly 10,000 were killed by an impaired driving. “Over the course of the past three years, California DUI collisions have claimed 3 lives and 70 people that were injured as a result of DUI crashes.

San Diego California DUI Sheriff Deputies will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment with officers checking drivers for proper licensing delaying motorists only momentarily. Specially trained Deputies will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving.

Not sure where they get all this propaganda:  Recent statistics reveal that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the DUI enforcement strategies, while also yielding considerable cost savings of $6 for every $1 spent. Nearly 90 percent of California drivers approve of DUI checkpoints.

San Diego California DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. San Diego California DUI Roadblock locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.

San Diego California DUI Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000 not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out. Funding for this San Diego California DUI checkpoint is provided to by the San Diego County Sheriff's Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to continue to work together to bring an end to these tragedies. If you see a Drunk Driver Call 9-1-1.

Comic Con Tips on how to avoid a downtown San Diego DUI this weekend, attorneys help

Comic Con hits San Diego with a bang!  San Diego's Gaslamp District's 5th Avenue will best amuse participants and Comic Con peek-a-boos.  But stay parked as there are three possible San Diego DUI Checkpoint locations, San Diego lawyers warn:  5th Ave., 1st Ave., and G Street.

Understand best way to go in order to avoid a San Diego Police Department DUI checkpoint, warn San Diego DUI lawyers.

If you have to drive, upon leaving downtown, the best approach:  Avoid 3 streets:  5th Ave., 1st Ave., and G Street.

From the heart of the Gaslamp, Com Con visitors should check your GPS or Google Maps for streets to use for your exit.  Make sure yo do not run into a situation where you are forced to turn one way or another because of one of the many one-way streets.

Eastbound E Street to 11th Avenue looks like one of the best possible routes to catch the 163 north.  From the 163 you can catch the 805 or the 8.

Driving along the harbor northwest is another good direction to go.  Broadway will take you turn there.

Stay Away from 5th.  500 Fifth Ave. DUI checkpoint (See e.g. Friday to Saturday a couple weeks ago), warn San Diego California DUI attorneys.

Legally turn off Fifth PRIOR to Ash.   Prior to Ash St., turn BEFORE A Street  which is before you see these "DUI Checkpoint Ahead" signs in these Google images:



You must avoiding 5th, G Street and 1st Avenue DUI Checkpoint Locations, the only 3 locations recently used by San Diego Police Department.

Pacific Beach is another place to avoid these San Diego DUI checkpoints on Com Con weekend, attorneys suggest.
