Route 3 Roundup Nets 6 Dui Checkpoint Arrests

A recent sobriety checkpoint set up on Route 3 managed to net a total of six arrests from June 12th to June 13th. The New Hampshire drunk driving sobriety checkpoint was enforced late Saturday night and ran until early Sunday morning. In all, 130 motorists were stopped as a result of the checkpoint, but only six were found to be either driving under the influence of alcohol or in possession of drugs or alcohol. According to a Union Leader report, the arrests involved motorists between the ages of 20 and 52 and consisted of charges centering around DWI and drug possession to transportation of alcohol by a minor.

While it is certainly worthwhile to remove impaired drivers from the road, the manner in which motorists are removed needs to be critically examined in order to ensure that innocent drivers are afforded every available right that they are entitled. During a traffic stop, there are numerous details that can simply go wrong, from procedural actions to malfunctioning blood alcohol concentration machines to improperly trained and uncertified officers administering field sobriety tests. In the event that an individual is accused of New Hampshire DWI or DUI, then that individual’s best course of action should involve retaining the services of an experienced Manchester DWI defense attorney who will examine the circumstances surrounding the arrest to ensure that the rights of the accused were in no way violated.

It is important to remember that breathalyzers and other devices used to determine blood alcohol concentration are not always 100% accurate. Improperly calibrated devices and improper device usage can both lead to false positives, and can place otherwise innocent motorists in the rather precarious position of having to face a New Hampshire DUI/DWI charge, which could include jail time, hefty fines, and possible administrative license suspension.
