As a result of the landmark Michigan Department of State Police v. Sitz 110 S.Ct. 2481 (1990) case, a state's police department is allowed to establish DUI checkpoints and roadblocks to monitor drivers passing through previous "problem areas" where accidents have occurred. Although future cases outline clear restrictions that force state police to designate a specific checkpoint area in advance, drivers still must comply with the standard 25 second police officer greeting that comes with each pull-over.
As one of Massachusetts top DUI lawyers, Attorney John B. Seed is well versed not only in OUI/DUI/DWI Drunk Driving offenses, but drug charges as well. It's an important practicing area to be an expert in, as cases involving drugs and narcotics are among the most common offenses to come into the court system in Massachusetts, even after the decriminalization of the possession of 1 oz. or less of marijuana.
