Should you get arrested for DUI in one of these checkpoints, they can be attacked.  Give me a call to discuss your options.  Keep in mind that you only have 10 days from the date of your arrest to schedule a hearing with the DMV or they will automatically suspend your driver’s license for 4 months.
