Pacific Beach DUI Checkpoints Record Breaking for San DiegoMarch 8, 2010 No Comments
Pacific Beach DUI checkpoints shown in red yield far more drunk drivers than most San Diego areas. Click the image for an enlarged image or click here for a PDF.
Checkpoints are often seen as high-visibility reminders and not necessarily the most effective enforcement opportunity, i.e. compared to saturation patrols. However, in my limited-knowledge opinion it seems they are effective at getting drunk drivers off the road and helping maintain the impression in the mind of potential law breakers long-term as events like saturation patrols don’t return the visibility or, un-safe vehicle inspection and impound-enforcement abilities.
