Checkpoint Law Changes and past Information

California law changes
removed much of the $$ incentive for the PD's to do Checkpoints in California, and went into effect last year.  We are watching out there for you.
 

AB353 was signed into law in California.  This means that drivers without valid licenses who are stopped at DUI Checkpoints in California will no longer automatically have their cars impounded - the PD's now have to make a reasonable attempt to find the owner and notifiy them.  And if the owner can pay the fines etc. they can get the car back without a 30 day automatic impound. This also means that a major part of the $$ incentive 
for the cities and the PD's to hold these Checkpoints has been removed.  Click Here for a post-passage article and some background on the new California law's effect.

AB1389 was vetoed by Jerry Brown, Governer of California.  This would have made it mandatory to give 48 hour notice of Checkpoints, and make it so that Checkpoints would be setup to look for Drinking Drivers only.  The Police Chiefs in CA convinced Gov. Brown to veto this Bill. 
So it's business as usual, except that the $$ incentive to hold a lot of these California Checkpoints has been removed.  We'll see if that cuts the frequency back. Click Here for an article a Street Reporter wrote on the subject.




Checkpoint Background Information

12 States either prohibit or do not allow DUI Checkpoints.  A 1990 U.S. Supreme Court case ruled that they are legal, but Checkpoints infringe on our civil liberties, are an ineffective way of catching drunken drivers and should be done away with.  Random PD Patrols are far more effective and less costly, but are not as sensational as all those flashy Checkpoints.  And DUI Checkpoints gather overtime for the cops, and reimbursement from Uncle Sugar or Uncle Jerry.

Almost all those Smartphone Aps that say they track the DUI Checkpoints are totally worthless.  Sometimes they list info that is texted in by drivers, but none of them monitor the news sources ahead of time like we do.  Plus we also put up listings right
away when unannounced CP's are discovered by alert motorists out there at night.  
Flash:  Blackberry and now Apple have dropped all DUI location Apps from Cellphone use, under pressure from the U.S. Congress.  Click Here for the USA Today article.

People ask why we don't publish this earlier for the weekend, and it's because 1) the PD's sometimes don't put out info until the last minute and 2) there are some copycat sites (mostly attorneys, ehhh) who know that we have the most and best Orange County info, so they copy the listings when we put them up.  Dirty.....


The PD's are supposed to announce Checkpoints in advance, but we have found that sometimes they use small publications, so very few people know.  And sometimes they don't announce them at all, figuring that drivers caught are not likely to contest the charges.   Be careful out there.

Some thoughts on why and how DUI Checkpoints exist, and how they seem to target ethnic groups.   Click Here for the article from the Orange County Register

Here's an article on AB1389, which would dramatically change the way California Police must conduct Checkpoints.  They are doing DUI checkpoints now at 10am, noontime, whenever.... just to catch and impound cars for the $$$.  Click Here for the article.

One of the local DUI attorneys tries to charge for alerts you can get here for free.  And Apple and others are being pushed to prevent the Apps from working.  Censorship?

In LA the PD has revised it's policy regarding non-DUI related offenders snared at Checkpoints.  Cutting way back on impounding cars.... it's a start.  Click Here for the article from the Los Angeles Times

This is guaranteed to make you wonder how these Checkpoints can continute to operate, in clear violation of the law.  Click Here for a News Video from PBS suggesting  that the impounding of cars is illegal and unconstitutional.

Here's some fresh info about what to expect re: OC DUI Checkpoints in 2010-11:  The State of California is set to expand DUI Checkpoints -- a 50% increase.  California may have the largest Checkpoint Program in the country this year, with an extra $8M in funding.  Click Here for the article about this from the Sacramento Bee.

Saturation Patrols are specially trained two man Police teams that cruise the city specifically to locate and arrest intoxicated drivers. Typically there are several teams out at the same time.

Quote from the Newport Beach PD:

http://www.ocregister.com/ocregister/opinion/abox/article_1393748.php

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) estimates that communities that consistently use sobriety checkpoints experience as much as 8 times the reduction in DUI incidence as communities that use roving patrols alone.
