What should I do if I received a Glen Burnie, MD DUI at a checkpoint that I believe wasn’t conducted properly?
Receiving a Glen Burnie, MD DUI is stressful and confusing. Not only are you worried about what might happen to your license and if you will go to jail, but you also may not know what you are up against. The situation is even worse when you don’t think the checkpoint was conducted properly and that you may not have deserved the charges to begin with. Here, a lawyer discusses what you should do if you believe the Maryland DUI checkpoint in which you were stopped was operated incorrectly.
Consult Other Passengers
If you had other passengers in the vehicle with you, talk to them about the checkpoint that led you to receive an Anne Arundel County DUI. Ask them if they remember the occurrences that led you to believe the checkpoint was conducting improperly. For instance, if you didn’t think there were any signs or a place in which to turn around, ask them if they saw the same. Having other witnesses to what you saw could help your case.
