Summer Months Bring DUI Checkpoints to Lake Havasu

Summer Months Bring DUI Checkpoints

Lake Havasu is a haven for “surprise” DUI checkpoints. Law enforcement recognizes Havasu as a popular attraction for those all around the world, primarily those who are on break from school or on vacation from work. Our office receives numerous calls a day from individuals  who were arrested at one of these checkpoints in Lake Havasu. For example, one of our clients traveled through Lake Havasu to drop a friend off at his home. He was stopped without cause at one of these “surprise” checkpoints and arrested for Super Extreme DUI.

Unintended Consequences of a DUI Arrest

What Super Extreme DUI means in a sense is driving while impaired with a Blood Alcohol Concentration above .20. Another client while driving home to Los Angeles from a Fourth of July celebration was stopped without cause at one of these surprise checkpoints. Though she did not consume any alcohol, officers still decided to arrest her for DUI. At first glance, being arrested for DUI at one of these numerous checkpoints can be a nerve-wracking experience. More importantly, it could happen to anyone.  One minute you think you’re on your way back home from having a good time at the lake driving through town and the next minute you’re being stopped for an unknown reason, then arrested for DUI.
