DUI Enforcement in East Bay

Oakland DUI Defense Lawyers

The California Highway Patrol has developed and implemented very successful DUI enforcement programs over the past decade. These programs are designed to catch DUI offenders and keep California roadways safe. While these programs are innovative and heralded by DUI safety experts, if they are not implemented in accordance with the rules and regulations, then they could be in violation of your rights. An experienced Oakland DUI attorney can review all aspects of your arrest to ensure that your rights were not violated at any point during the DUI process.

Checkpoint Operations

The CHP began conducting sobriety checkpoints in 1984. They serve a dual purpose: to apprehend DUI offenders and to increase the public's awareness of the hazards of driving impaired. They conduct these checkpoints on highly visible and busy roads in California—and offer roadside testing and Breathalyzer testing for individuals that they suspect have been drinking and driving.

DUI Proactive Overtime and Task Force Programs

Grant-funded overtime programs allow the CHP to increase the number of officers who are out on patrol during hours when DUIs occur the most. They deploy extra officers to specific locations where individuals may be tempted to drive drunk and saturate events, such as football games, festivals, and concerts.

Drug Recognition Expert Program

This is a program that offers police officers the specialized training they need to evaluate whether a suspect is driving under the influence of drugs. This training gives them the skills they need to accurately detect specific drugs, evaluate, and arrest the drug-impaired driver.

Screening & Testing Programs

Another DUI enforcement program is the screening program the CHP employs. Currently, the CHP is allowed by law to forcibly take blood samples from people arrested for DUI who refuse to consent to a chemical BAC test. In addition, the CHP is equipped with over 2,500 preliminary alcohol-screening devices (Breathalyzers) that enable them to provide on-the-spot measurements of a suspected driver's BAC.

When DUI Enforcement Goes Too Far

There are times when the DUI enforcement programs go too far. When it is your word against the officer's word, you need an experienced DUI lawyer in Oakland on your side. A California police officer has the right to arrest you and charge you with DUI simply because they believe that you are under the influence—even if your BAC reading is below the legal limit. Sadly, there are police officers that abuse this authority and arrest innocent men and women.
