2018 Memorial Day DUI Checkpoints

For many, the Memorial Day long weekend marks the official start of the summer.  For police it marks the official start of DUI hunting season.

While many of us will be out enjoying all that Pennsylvania has to offer with family and friends, police are hard at work planning DUI checkpoints on major roadways.

Memorial Day DUI Checkpoint

At The McShane Firm, we encourage all drivers to make safe and responsible decisions.  We also believe that the entire population of Pennsylvania should not be subject to unwarranted searches at DUI checkpoints.  We want to avoid this infringement on our rights as a citizen and to be simply left alone from warrantless intrusion by the Government. The fact of the matter is, the motivations behind DUI checkpoints are financial and political.   They are not an effective law enforcement tool.
