After a several year hiatus, DUI check points are making there comeback in Gainesville. The last DUI Checkpoint in Gainesville was December 31, 2013. However, members of the Florida Highway Patrol, Alachua County Sheriff’s Office and Gainesville Police Department started back up again on June 26, 2015 with a DUI Checkpoint on Archer Road. According the Gainesville Police Department Facebook page, “The Checkpoint serves as an educational tool and reminder for those driving the roadways of the dangers of driving under the influence of alcoholic beverages.”
Please do not drink and drive, however, if you or someone you know has had the unfortunate experience of being arrested for driving under the influence, please contact the experienced attorneys at Michael P. Maddux, P.A. to assist you in navigating through both the Division of Motor Vehicle System as well as the Criminal Justice System.
