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.
