Chicago DUI Attorney Wonders About the Effectiveness of Roadblocks

This Chicago DUI Attorney wants you to know that tomorrow night you do not want to start your weekend trapped in an invasive, and in some jurisdictions illegal, roadblock.  So I've already done the leg work for you and here are the details.

The Chicago Police Department will conduct a Roadside Safety Check in the Calumet (5th) District at 11800 S. Halsted. The Roadside Safety Check will commence at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, September 27, 2013 and end at 4:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 28, 2013.

During roadside safety checks, police officers slow down traffic, stop cars at regular intervals and watch for drivers who show signs of alcohol impairment and other violations as noted below.

Somehow, I think the citizens of this great city would rather spend these personnel hours with "boots on the ground" by way of community policing to decrease the number of intentional violent crimes that continue to befall this great city.
