Encinitas to Conduct a DUI Checkpoint and Saturation Patrol

The Encinitas Station of the San Diego Sheriff’s Department announced in a press release they will be conducting a holiday DUI checkpoint and saturation patrol on Friday, December 10th, from 8 p.m. until 3 a.m. The checkpoint will be located at the 1700 block of South El Camino Real.

It is the holiday season. You can expect that law enforcement from Chula Vista and El Cajon to Oceanside and Temecula will be out in full force looking for drivers who are under the influence. Do not take a chance of getting arrested. Plan ahead before you head out to your holiday party.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) recommends you use a designated driver, prepare to stay the night, call a friend for a ride, or call a cab. BUT, If you do get arrested for DUI, an aggressive DUI attorney can protect your rights. You have to act fast. You only have 10 days from the date of arrest to request a DMV hearing; otherwise, your driving privilege will be revoked or suspended.
