Also, many arrests occur at a roadside checkpoint commonly called a DUI roadblock. However, the police cannot simply implement a roadblock any time or any place. A roadblock is an exception to the 4th amendment of the United States Constitution. As an exception, that means the general rule would not allow for drivers to be stopped without sufficient cause. As a result, the exception should be narrowly drawn to protect the rights of drivers. An experienced DUI Attorney in Atlanta will know how to challenge the legality of the roadblock that resulted in your arrest. We never assume that a roadside checkpoint was legally implemented.
