Sobriety Checkpoints in Chattanooga


Sobriety checkpoints, sometimes referred to as DUI roadblocks, are tools utilized by law enforcement in order to prevent drunk driving. These checkpoints are supposed to be used as a means of preventing drunk driving, rather than of making arrests for driving under the influence (DUI), because of their potential of infringing upon Fourth Amendment rights. A sobriety checkpoint must adhere to certain regulations, and thus it is important to consult a Chattanooga DUI attorney immediately if you have been arrested at a checkpoint or roadblock.


At The Garza Law Firm, PLLC, we are familiar with the laws governing sobriety checkpoints in Tennessee and will use this knowledge to your benefit. A skilled drunk driving lawyer may be able to prove that the checkpoint where you were stopped was not following these guidelines and therefore may be able to strengthen your defense or have your charges reduced or dropped. When you contact DUI defense lawyer Marcos Garza for a free initial consultation, your case will be reviewed to see if a sobriety checkpoint was improperly used, or if at any other point in your arrest your rights were violated or protocol was not followed by law enforcement.


If you or someone you know was arrested for driving under the influence after being stopped at a sobriety checkpoint in Chattanooga, consult with an experienced Tennessee DUI defense attorney. Chattanooga DUI defense lawyer Marcos Garza will review the circumstances of your case and charges and will determine what defense strategy will be most effective. It may be that the roadblock was set up improperly or that it was not intended to prevent drunk driving but rather to make DUI arrests.


Contact The Garza Law Firm, PLLC without delay if you have been charged with a DUI after being pulled over at a sobriety checkpoint.
