Rockville, Gaithersburg, Silver Spring & Wheaton, Maryland
If you’re like most people in Maryland, you plan on watching the Super Bowl. And, if you’re like most people in Maryland, you may have a few drinks during the game. The police know this and will likely have checkpoints and other measures in place to arrest people who have been drinking.
As we’ve discussed before, you have certain rights at DUI checkpoints, one of which is to simply turn around when you see flashing lights. In fact, the US District Court for Maryland has concluded that making a u-turn prior to a checkpoint does not provide the reasonable articulate suspicion necessary to justify a traffic stop. If you do not see a checkpoint or are pulled over independently, your best option is to cooperate with police and, if charged with a DUI, call Maryland drunk driving defense attorney Leon Geller at (301) 309-8001 to schedule a free and informative consultation.
