Union County DWI Task Force & Kenilworth Initiating Crackdown
From August 21 through September 7, sobriety checkpoints will be conducted in Union County as part of the “Over the Limit – Under Arrest” campaign. The first roadblock has been scheduled by Union County and the Kenilworth Police and shall be conducted on August 27, 2009. The roadblock shall be positioned at the interection of Kenilworth Boulevard and Michigan Avenue and shall run from 8:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m.
Roadblocks and DWI checkpoints are actually much more common than many people know. Notwithstanding, the odds of someone encountering one is low, particularly when you consider that professionals are made aware of sobriety stops long before they are conducted; the law requires Union County and other counties and municipalities to publish notice of a checkpoint in order for the detail to be legal.
If you have the unfortunate luck of being charged with a Union County dwi as a result of a roadblock, we can assist you.
