DUI checkpoints set up to curb drunk driving during Cinco de Mayo

With Cinco de Mayo falling on a Saturday this year, police officials across the nation are stepping up their DUI patrols in order to curb the amount of drunk drivers that may hit the roadway after holiday celebrations.

Stationary DUI checkpoints will be set up nationwide by police officials in order to check drivers for impairment. Elevens states, mostly ones that do not allow DUI checkpoints, will be doing mobile patrols.

These mobile patrols will include police officers patrolling the streets on motorcycles in order to check for any sign of driver impairment by looking through the car’s window. The Center of Disease Control has stated DUI checkpoints reduce drunk driving crashes by nearly 20 percent.

Drunk driving is a danger to anyone on the roadway and can cause serious accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in a drunk driving crash, you need experienced representation on your side.
