According to the News Observer, the Raleigh Police Department arrested another 23 individuals at a checkpoint over the weekend in the early morning hours of December 21, 2013. If you’ve been charged with drunk driving at a Wake County checkpoint, you should call a lawyer immediately. The United States Supreme Court has made clear that DUI/DWI checkpoints are presumptively unconstitutional unless very strict criteria are met in their planning and implementation, and Raleigh checkpoints are rarely administered without violating the constitutional rights of citizens guilty of no crime.
