Ponte Vedra Beach DUI Checkpoints

Ponte Vedra Beach DUI Checkpoints must pass certain constitutional standards. In Florida, two major cases govern the constitutionality of DUI checkpoints: Campbell v. State, 679 So. 2d 1168 (Fla. 1996) and State v Jones, 483 so. 2d 433 (Fla. 1986). The police officers conducting the DUI roadblock must have written guidelines that lay out detailed procedures for them to follow. The guidelines must “set out procedures regarding (1) the selection of vehicles, (2) detention techniques, (3) duty assignments, and (4) the disposition of vehicles.” Jones, 483 So. 2d at 438.  Indeed, other Florida cases have addressed this issue such as the Florida Second District Court of Appeals (See 

Guy v. State, 993 So. 2d 77 (Fla. 2nd DCA 2008)). For more information about this case, read “Florida Court Rules on DUI Checkpoint and Road Block Case” by Ponte Vedra DUI Attorney.
