Sobriety Checkpoints and Roadblocks in California

What a Criminal Defense Attorney Can Tell You

The United States Supreme Court has specifically approved the use of limited sobriety checkpoints. The Court in Michigan v. Sitz, 496 U.S.444 (1990) held that sobriety checkpoints must: (1) present only a slight intrusion; (2) operate according to a plan that limits participating officers’ discretion; and (3) be aimed at curbing the problem of impaired drivers.
