In an effort to enforce safe driving, several cities within Orange County will be conducing DUI sobriety roving patrols. The Orange County Sheriff’s Department will be conducting these DUI roving patrols today, Friday December 2nd, within the city limits of Aliso Viejo, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Hills and Laguna Woods. The roving patrols are funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to help reduce the amount of DUIs and DUI related collisions.
Unlike standard DUI sobriety checkpoints, roving DUI patrols are not stationary and therefore cannot be avoided by motorists. These roving patrol officers look for motorists who exhibit obvious signs of intoxication such as swerving, bloodshot or watery eyes and even the scent of alcohol.
If you plan on going out this weekend, please be aware that not all DUI checkpoints will be announced prior to their commencement and not all will occur in one location. If you happen to be arrested during a DUI roving patrol or DUI sobriety checkpoint, contact our Orange County DUI Defense Lawyer immediately.
