To help you become more aware of DWI checkpoints, Seth Blum, a seasoned Raleigh DWI lawyer with Kurtz & Blum explains what you can expect.
Often the authorities that man a DWI checkpoint will include members from a variety of agencies. For instance, this might include Raleigh Police, Wake County Sherriff's Office and the State Highway Patrol. Outside the city you might also see other police departments, members from the emergency services, the fire department and even local high school students. Therefore, it's not unusual to see officers wearing different uniforms at one checkpoint.
