Remain Calm If You Approach a DUI Checkpoint

Over the 4th of July weekend, you will probably notice an influx of traffic checkpoints. This is because it is a holiday weekend. There will be many travelers, and there will be a lot of partying. Your friends have told you about their checkpoint experiences and have even warned others on social media about where one might be, but maybe you have never been through a DUI checkpoint yourself. Do not worry, you should not be nervous about coming across one.

You will pull over to the side of the road and roll your window down to answer the officer’s questions: Where are you headed tonight? Where are you coming from? How much have you had to drink? Depending on your answers, you may need to blow into a breathalyzer. As long as you are under the legal BAC limit and acting soundly, the officer will let you drive on. However, if you are a bit sloppy and/or blow higher than a 0.08%, you will be briefly detained until you sober up or get someone to pick you up.

DUI checkpoints are standard procedure and put into action in order to keep the roads safer for everyone. California Bail Bond Store is no stranger to bailing people out of jail, and on holiday weekends like July 4th, we bail a higher than normal number of people out of jail for DUIs compared to other offenses.

Our favorite mode of transportation remains our own personal vehicles because we drive at our own speed and do not have to wait for anyone else. However, there are times when not driving, and getting a taxi, Lyft, or Uber is more ideal. The next time this is ideal, is this coming 4th of July holiday weekend. The biggest benefits all intertwine: you do not have to worry about drinking and driving, you do not have to worry about getting into an accident, and you do not have to worry about getting pulled over.

Let a taxi, Uber, Lyft, or even a designated friend or family member, take care of you this 4th of July weekend. That is not to say you should go wild, but at least you can have a little more fun without as much worry.

Too many people get arrested for DUIs, especially on major holiday weekends like July 4th. California Bail Bond Store knows this because we bail quite a few people out of jail for that reason. We hope that this year, you are not one of our calls. However, if you do end up needing a bail bond, you can definitely count on us. Contact California Bail Bond Store online, or call 877-793-2245.
