There are a number of different factors we review in order to challenge the DMV.
- Did the officer violate your constitutional rights when he stopped you?
- Did your lab results get handled with proper procedure?
- Does the evidence indicate a possible “rising blood alcohol” defense?
Arrested at a Sobriety Checkpoint?
- Was the Sobriety Checkpoint lawful?
The sobriety checkpoint must be placed in an area with proper safety procedures.
- Was the checkpoint visible or was it obscured?
- Were you pursued after you changed directions to avoid the checkpoint?
Law enforcement officers may not force drivers to enter the checkpoint and may not pursue drivers if they change directions legally!
If the DMV suspends your license, you still have options!
