FHP To Conduct Sobriety Checkpoint
The Florida Highway Patrol will be conducting a D.U.I. Enforcement Detail Sept. 23-24 in Collier County. The objective is to reduce alcohol related traffic fatalities, traffic crashes and other criminal activities.
Since DUI related crashes result in more deaths each year than total homicides, it is quite obvious impaired driving and impaired related crashes constitute a major threat to the safety and well being of the public. Reducing the deaths and injuries associated with this violation is one of the most important goals of this and other law enforcement agencies.
By the use of D.U.I. Enforcement Details along with continuing public information and education, we hope to maximize the deterrent effect and
increase the perception of “risk of apprehension” of motorist who would operate a vehicle while impaired by alcohol or drugs.
Although DUI checkpoints are in direct violation of the Constitution’s 4th amendment, they continue and will continue to be conducted. However, a DUI arrest at one of these checkpoints are very vulnerable to be dropped.
