October DUI Stops in Hillsborough County

DUI checkpoints will be held sporadically throughout October in order for law enforcement to curb the amount of drunk driving on the road. While checkpoints are illegal in some states, Florida allows law enforcement officers to set up these patrols as long as certain rules are followed.

Be Prepared for DUI Checkpoints in October

The public must be notified of a DUI checkpoint before they are set to occur in order to allow options to avoid it. If they do not avoid the checkpoint, they consent to be questioned when they drive through it.

Hillsborough County will have increased DUI patrols and checkpoints at these dates and locations:

  • October 17, Eastern Hillsborough County
  • October 22, Western Hillsborough County
  • October 25, City of Plant City
  • October 27, Southern Hillsborough County
  • October 31, Northern Hillsborough County

Drivers in these areas should know that there is a possibility to encounter a checkpoint and plan accordingly. If a person plans to be drinking, it is in their best interest to make sure a designated driver is available to prevent getting behind the wheel while intoxicated.

When mistakes happen and a person is caught at a DUI checkpoint for driving under the influence, Thomas & Paulk is here to help. With over two decades of legal experience, our firm knows that DUI conviction can carry serious consequences, and can provide an effective defense for these charges.
