Best Criminal Defense Attorney: How to Find Where Checkpoints Are

By: William C. Head, Named Best Lawyer for DUI in 2012 and 2017 by Best Lawyers in America

Georgia DUI Lawyer of the Year

Where Are the DUI Checkpoints?

Although it is extremely unwise for a drunk driver to assume that he or she can navigate the highways to get home without possibly encountering a DUI checkpoint, many foolishly try this late night gambit. Due to that known fact, some drinking drivers can benefit from knowing an area or route where law officer roadblocks are not likely to be “set up” by local police.

But, determining the age-old question of “where are the roadblocks near me?” is not an easy one to answer.

DUI Checkpoint Georgia

While many roadblock apptell you that they have valuable data, the very nature of roadblocks and license checkpoints is that (in Georgia) these are not routinely publicized because Georgia’s appellate courts have not yet ruled that pre-roadblock publicity is mandated by the Constitution.

DUI Checkpoint Apps

You can activate your checkpoint app and possibly use Waze to identify a location where “police ahead” is signaled, but criminal defense attorneys will tell you that these efforts are like gambling if you drive drunk. For those who are gamblers in guessing “where are the checkpoints?”, be certain to read about your legal rights, and how to best protect yourself from a DUI conviction if stopped by an officer at a sobriety checkpoint.

Client Interviews Help Our DUI Lawyers Know Roadblock Locations

These are the most UNLIKELY places to ever see roadblock locations and face a DUI in Georgia:

  • Interstate Highways
  • High-speed divided highway roads where safety can be compromised due to speeds
  • Residential neighborhood streets, especially those with no outlet except an entrance road

DUI Sobriety Check Points

The following types of streets or roadways are where DUI checkpoints are more likely to be encountered:

  • Feeder roads from bar and restaurant areas connecting to major interstates or connectors
  • Primary roads leading from recreational areas, such as public lakes, fall festivals, and college sporting events
  • Roads around outdoor entertainment venues, such as stock car races, concerts, and Piedmont Park events (Dogwood Festival, Atlanta Jazz Festival, Grateful Dead, Jimmy Buffett)
  • Sports venues, such as UGA Football in Athens, Georgia Southern Football in Statesboro, Atlanta Braves in Cobb County, Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta United Soccer, or the Atlanta Falcons in the new Mercedes Benz Stadium.
