Metairie DWI DUI Attorney
Drunken Driver Checkpoint
Will be Set up Friday Night in East Jefferson
Sheriff’s deputies will be looking for drivers who are under the influence or not wearing a seatbelt Friday night in East Jefferson. Anyone drinking and driving will immediately be arrested.
A checkpoint will be set up in an “undisclosed location,” on the east bank, according to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office.
The goal of the checkpoint is to reduce injuries and fatalities related to drinking and driving. Deputies will be at the checkpoint between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m.
Motorists are warned to have a designated driver if they will be drinking during the evening and always remember to use their seat belts.
Attorney Elizabeth B Carpenter
Ms. Carpenter has defended nearly every kind of Drinking and Driving case Imaginable. It is very important to consult a New Orleans DWI Defense Attorney immediately after a DWI arrest to preserve your driving privileges. DWI arrests are based solely on officers’ subjective opinions and machines used to measure blood alcohol content can be unreliable, especially when not administered properly. Therefore, DWI defense is very complicated and involves an intricate understanding of the scientific as well as the legal issues. Ms. Carpenter has completed courses on NHTSA DWI Detection and Field Sobriety Testing and the breath testing machine known as the Intoxilyzer 5000. These are the same courses law enforcement must take. This level of dedication to the defense of DWI charges helps Ms. Carpenter challenge the common errors that police officers make when arresting citizens for DWI in the New Orleans area. Sometimes, these errors form enough evidence to have the entire case dismissed.
