The law allows for roadside sobriety checkpoints to be held from time to time in the Gwinnett County and Lawrenceville areas. When you are pulled over at a roadside checkpoint, you are required to comply with a request to provide your driver's license, registration and insurance, as you would any time you are stopped by police. You are not actually by law required to answer other questions, such as “have you been drinking?” It is usually best to be extremely respectful, but you can decline questioning and you can also legally decline field sobriety tests. However, per state law, if you refuse the breath or blood test, you will face a serious penalty: a one-year suspension of your driver's license. If you are arrested for DUI at a roadside checkpoint, please contact a Gwinnett Count DUI lawyer as soon as possible to begin fighting to protect yourself.
