DUI checkpoints are common during holiday weekends. Checkpoints occur when officers block off certain areas of the roadway and check cars at random for impaired drivers.
DUI checkpoints can also lead to other traffic-related arrests, such as DWLS (driving while license suspended) and NVDL (no valid driver's license).
A DUI in the State of Florida can have serious consequences. Jail time, license suspension, heavy fines, and vehicle impoundment are only a few possible sentences.
If it is your second or third DUI, you could be looking at mandatory jail time.
